Kubotek3D Releases Updates to K-Display and K-Compare Products
Software enhanced with updated file translators, improve entity type listings and automated detection of duplicated parts and features.
June 18, 2021
Kubotek3D has issued the 3.2 release of the Kubotek K-Compare and K-Display software products. This release provides updates to CATIA and Siemens CAD file translators, user interface improvements and several new functions. The new releases are available for customers to download immediately.
Updated Translators and Entity List
The new releases provide the ability for users to open the latest versions of CATIA and Siemens NX part, assembly, drawing and lightweight 3D files. The user interface has been improved to sort different types of annotation and view entities into separate folders in the file contents list. Saved and captured views in the new list format better match the structure used in the originating CAD software. This is an important step for users to review the contents of the CAD file and adjust the display for better visualization.
K-Display Duplicate Parts and Features
K-Display View and K-Display Convert products now provide an option that automatically discovers sets of geometrically identical 3D bodies. This capability can save time and potential errors when working with large assemblies which have been saved into a single CAD file.
The basic feature discovery capabilities of these products have also been enhanced in release 3.2 to detect patterns of features such as standard holes, fillets and chamfers. This information speeds up tasks such as planning machining operations because it allows users to quickly see which areas can be cut with the same tool.
