Samsung SDS America Unveils New WiseVIEW 4.0 Multipurpose File Viewer.Business/Technology Editors
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 22, 2001
WiseVIEW 4.0 allows engineering, CAD and enterprise users easy access
to hundreds of file formats for quick viewing and conversion
Samsung SDS 1. (company) SDS - Scientific Data Systems.
2. (tool) SDS - Schema Definition Set. America, the U.S. subsidiary of Korea's $1 billion information technology company Samsung SDS, announces WiseVIEW 4.0, a powerful multipurpose file viewer capable of displaying and converting hundreds of file formats. By supporting all the most popular image and file formats, WiseVIEW eliminates the need to purchase and maintain multiple desktop applications and operating systems to simply view a native file format. WiseVIEW 4.0 is designed for a wide range of users, from general enterprise employees to professional engineers and CAD users. Last year, Samsung SDS successfully launched WiseVIEW in Japan.
WiseVIEW replaces the need for multiple desktop applications by supporting the most common image and office productivity suite file formats. For professional designers and engineers WiseVIEW allows editing, assembling and mark up of 3D images from multiple sources and then allows users to save them in a generic file format for distribution. For CAD designers, WiseVIEW allows images to be saved in all the most popular CAD systems formats for project members who work with multiple vendors or design teams. WiseVIEW's tight integration with browsers means it can be installed on a corporate intranet to enable employees and managers across the globe to share virtually any document or image file without the need for the original application. "For desktop users, WiseVIEW eliminates the need to rush out and buy a costly application in order to view a file. The savings are even greater when groups of users need to work on a file together," said Jiyoung Chang, Vice President of the e-Solution Division of Samsung SDS America. "For CAD engineers, the exceptional ability to view and compare complex model data makes WiseVIEW an essential addition to their toolbox."
WiseVIEW offers powerful functionality for displaying and manipulating complex 3D CAD models and includes features such as Sectioning, Transforming, and Assembling. Users can display CAD models in real time, and manipulate them in numerous ways for use in applications such as CATIA A family of 2D and 3D CAD programs from IBM. CATIA was one of the first CAD programs to provide 3D solid modeling. The program was developed by Dassault Systems, a French aerospace company. , Unigraphics, ParaSolid, SolidWorks, IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) An ANSI file format that is system independent and also intended for human interpretation. Evolving out of the U.S. , STEP, VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) A 3D graphics language used on the Web. After downloading a VRML page, its contents can be viewed, rotated and manipulated. Simulated rooms can be "walked into." The VRML viewer is launched from within the Web browser. 2, 3DS,VDA-FS, and STL (STereoLithography) A 3D printing file format created by 3D Systems for its stereolithography system. Also supported by many numerical control, rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing machines, STL provides the surface geometry of the item in triangles. . The ability to save 3D CAD formats (IGES, VRML, 3DS, STL) in a variety of formats makes it easy for CAD engineers to share images across multiple platforms and applications.
WiseVIEW is ideal in areas such as PDMS (Product Data Management System) See PDM. (Product Data Management Systems), EDMS (Electronic Document Management System or Enterprise Document Management System ) See document management.
EDMS - Electronic Document Management System (Electric Document Management Systems) and KMS KMS - Knowledge Management System (Knowledge Management Systems). . ActiveX controls enable WiseVIEW to totally integrate with other systems including legacy PDM applications. In addition, WiseVIEW users can work in collaboration with other colleagues on the network using the Audio/Video conferencing capabilities of Microsoft Netmeeting.
