WorkXPlore 3D is a CAD viewer developed by Sescoi for reading, analyzing and sharing 3D and 2D CAD files without having to rely on the original CAD application. It was launched in 2008 and is supported from Sescoi offices in the USA, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Japan, India, China and Korea, and 50 distributors around the world. A free viewer version and a free evaluation version are available.
WorkXPlore 3D is a high-speed collaborative viewer that was designed for users who are not CAD experts to explore 2D/3D CAD files.
WorkXPlore enables the user to measure 3D parts and offers advanced analysis features allowing the user to determine undercut areas, plane surfaces, thickness, volumes, surfaces, weight and also to perform dynamic cross-sectional visualization. 2D drawings are no longer necessary as it is possible to directly add dimensional and geometric measurements, annotations and labels to the 3D model.
WorkXPlore 3D also allows the user to send 3D parts and assembly files to sub-contractors, customers or co-workers via a standalone and extremely compact application which can be easily transmitted via the Internet as an executable file. The recipient can immediately display and work on the 3D model received. WorkXPlore 3D can open and process large 3D files extremely quickly.
In 2010 WorkXPlore 3D was selected by All Nippon Airways (ANA) to distribute and share CAD design information for the maintenance of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Japan. WorkXPlore 3D is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Czech, Japanese, Chinese and Korean, with other languages in development.
