Visualization of different kinds of data
Rich text rendering abilities
Optimized collision detection
Advanced GPU effects like real-time shadows
Rich import possibilities with access to native properties
PDF export and publishing
Progressive mesh object for LOD support
Designed for a wide variety of tasks and problem domains.
Domains and Workflows
Adaptable to a wide range of application areas and workflows, including construction, BIM, plant & process, FEA, CFD, PDM, PLM, general CAD and more.
Visualize can be integrated into any type of web-based system, including configurators, PLM & PDM systems, viewers and markup editors. It can query the original model based on selected objects, and can be customized to interact with databases and other external systems.
Unified Multi-Format Viewers
Visualize any supported format through a single, unified workflow. Add markup and custom views, and export to VSF (Visualize Stream Format) for archival and fast retrieval.
Combine multiple models from any supported formats into a single view, similar to capabilities provided by Autodesk® Navisworks®.
Visualize large models with ease.
An optimized scene graph stores the primary model, while markup and temporary graphics are stored separately for fast redraw.
Visualize is designed to handle large data sets efficiently. Spatial indexing, level of detail, and other optimization techniques provide fast performance.
Streaming, memory limiting and other techniques provide real-time responsiveness in web-based applications.
Collision detection, cutting planes and more.
Real-time detection of collisions between model elements.
Use multiple cutting planes to expose and inspect interior sections of a model.
Automatically create an exploded view of a model for product documentation and other purposes.
Precisely measure distances in any model. Under development.
Visualize is compatible with all formats supported by ODA.
Visualize SDK provides a set of classes that store parameters used during import and export processes.
Visualize SDK supports a number of different file formats which can be found in the table below.
|.rcs (Autodesk® Recap®)|
|PDF (3D PRC-based)|
|VSF (Visualize Stream Format)|
