CCE, a provider of advanced CAD interoperability technology, has launched a free cloud CAD viewer product, EnSuite-Cloud, to assist remote working during the current COVID crisis.
EnSuite-Cloud is a free CAD viewer that works directly on any browser. Users can view files from all major CAD formats, including CATIA V5, CATIA V6 (3DXML), SolidWorks, NX, Creo, Autodesk Inventor, Solid Edge, JT and glTF among others.
EnSuite-Cloud uses an advanced web rendering engine to power its viewer that is faster and offers much greater performance optimizations than other rendering engines, especially when dealing with large 3D CAD models, parts and assemblies.
“The current crisis has forced companies to get innovative with remote work methodologies, while being careful with resources under these trying times. EnSuite-Cloud truly democratizes CAD by empowering everyone with free access to high quality 3D CAD viewing technology regardless of their location. Investing in expensive CAD viewing technology, or worse still using a CAD license, is a resource drain most companies can’t afford today. EnSuite-Cloud is free and accessible directly on any browser. Users don’t have to worry about installing new software upgrades. Periodic updates will be delivered automatically without causing any disruption to the user. We are hoping it helps companies continue with their engineering innovation under these challenging times,” says Vinay Wagle, CCE’s V.P. of Sales & Marketing.
Users can not only view multi-CAD files in their browser, but also be able to measure, evaluate bounding box and create section views of the model among other things.
EnSuite-Cloud is built using CCE’s CAD interoperability technology that is currently being licensed by several top CAD Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). As a result, it is completely CAD independent. Users do not need licenses of the CAD systems to view files of those systems. It is also platform independent and can be viewed on any of the supported browsers.
