Just about anywhere you see a 2D engineering drawing, you can use SolidView instead. By giving everyone involved in the product development and support process a 3D view they can move, scale, rotate and measure, you increase their understanding of the data and improve their productivity. The advantages of SolidView over 2D drawings include:

  • Users can view and measure the 3D data
  • Valuable engineering time is not wasted on creating 2D drawings
  • Users can directly view up-to-date CAD data instead of outdated 2D drawings
  • Complex designs and assemblies can be viewed on a low-cost PC, saving plotting paper and supplies and reducing the security risk of drawing disposal
