Kubotek3D Launches CAD File Translation Converter

June 21 2019, 00:45
Working on SolidWorks but need to share the project with someone working on AutoCAD? That's precisely where K-Display from Kubotek3D is able to help. Until now, the company offered K-Display View, which allowed opening, navigating, and measuring all major CAD file formats on any device, supporting Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. Now, the Marlborough, MA, -based company launched K-Display Convert, which enables both CAD file translation and viewing on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Kubotek3D is a leading developer of precision geometry software technology, recognized for its CAD file validation and visualization tools. Now, the company announced the availability of K-Display Convert, a new multi-platform program for CAD file translation and viewing built on the universal CAD architecture of the Kubotek Kosmos 3D framework introduced in 2018. 

The new Convert program is the second title under the K-Display brand which was introduced a year ago with a viewer tool that was ideal for sales, support, and service departments. The new CAD translation application enables users to open files from any major format and publish them to neutral formats with no additional CAD software.

“Kubotek’s K-Display Convert enables flexible sharing of precise CAD data with various downstream CAD/CAM and graphics programs throughout an organization,” says Ram Eswaran, CTO of Kubotek3D. “A fast and easy-to-use translator program such as K-Display Convert eliminates the need to go back to the design team to request CAD data in different formats.”

K-Display Convert requires no additional CAD software, enabling users to open the latest versions of files from the most commonly used CAD programs like SolidWorks, AutoCAD, PTC Creo, Siemens NX, CATIA V5/V4, and others and save them in neutral formats such as IGES, STEP, ACIS SAT, and STL.

Additional features of the new K-Display Convert software include the possibility to measure any size, distance, area, or volume of solids, modify the display using pan/zoom/rotate, transparency, and cutting plane functions, hide and unhide objects from the original CAD file, and print CAD files and generate image and PDF files.

Kubotek3D develops mechanical CAD software and core precision 3D technologies that facilitate interoperability between CAD programs. This strategy allows geometry, no matter where it originated, to be used throughout the manufacturing supply chain to speed time to market, reduce costs and improve quality. Kubotek3D is a division of Kubotek USA, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kubotek Corporation, founded in 1979 in Japan.
