[Kubotek Kosmos] Launches All New Multi-Platform Programs for CAD File Viewing At IMTS 2018

VIEW software enables CAD file viewing on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

MARLBOROUGH, MA—August 22, 2018— [Kubotek Kosmos], the leading developer of precision geometry software technology, today announced that it will debut its new VIEW software at IMTS 2018. Kubotek’s View software is an all new multi-platform program for CAD file viewing built on the universal CAD architecture of the new Kubotek Kosmos 3D framework. IMTS is the premier manufacturing technology show in the Northern Hemisphere, taking place September 10-15, 2018 in Chicago.

The View software is the first [Kubotek Kosmos] release available on Windows, Mac and Linux, and replaces the Kubotek Spectrum multi-CAD viewer software introduced in 2005. The software also provides a streamlined user interface and significantly faster operation over its predecessor.

“CAD applications are expensive, and in many cases, it’s unnecessary for all members of a team to have individual licenses for full versions of the software,” said Yoko Nakamoto, CEO of Kubotek USA. “Kubotek’s View software is an engineering-grade, ‘one-stop shop’ program that enables users to view CAD files of all types without the need for any additional tools, resources, or licenses.”

The software requires no additional CAD software or internet connection, enabling users from manufacturing, sales, support, and service departments to:

  • Read-only open the latest versions of files from the most commonly used CAD programs like SolidWorks, AutoCAD, PTC Creo, Siemens NX, CATIA V5/V4, and neutral formats such as IGES, STEP, Parasolid X_T, ACIS SAT, and STL
  • Measure any size, distance, area, or volume of solids
  • Modify display using pan, zoom, rotate, and render functions
  • Print, create image and PDF files
