WorkXplore 2017 R1’s curvature analysis

Vero Software’s 3D CAD viewer and analyser WorkXplore, which can open all file types and sizes at high speed, is now available for trial and purchase directly from the software’s website.

Accorfding to Vero, WorkXplore often takes ‘less than half the time to open a file’ when compared to the original CAD application, letting users build virtual unified prototypes or 3D models imported from a wide range of file formats, including Catia, NX, Parasolid, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, STEP, IGES and many more.

The software saves the native CAD data in its own lightweight format, meaning manufacturers can carry out tasks such as calculating surface areas and volumes, and measuring thickness, dimensions and angles without requiring the original CAD information.

Built around a core simulation application, FastEngineeringAnalysis.com‘s service is claiming meshing and simulation times reduced by ‘at least 50 per cent’ via the user’s set of Virtual Machines.

The service offers flexible licenses as short as three hours, or a ‘Total Service’ option for a fixed monthly price, and offers a choice of meshing engines between Tetgen (Tetrahedral) and a more controllable product by Simmetrix, with ‘an easy to use API’.

Within the Simulation App is an integrated report-writing facility where users can document the whole product development cycle, and keep track of the effects of changes to simulation variables throughout the process.
