Version 11.4 of 3DViewStation, known for its high-performance 3D-viewing and current and mature CAD-importers, has been released by Kisters. This latest version includes updates of the importers to read Catia V5 R22, Catia V6 2013 and SolidEdge ST5, with a new importer to support 3D-PDF reading. Two new analysis functions for volume and surface, which can be leveraged once a model has been loaded in BREP (boundary representation) mode, have also been added.
