CadFaster launches CadFaster|QuickStep for OpenGL - a free viewing tool for 3D professionals

CadFaster has launched a new 3D viewer, a completely free and innovative tool for CAD professionals. CadFaster|QuickStep offers ultimate viewing capabilities by supporting the standard STEP and HSF file formats. The new tool provides a performance and image quality boost without extra hardware. Viewing the largest 3D datasets is now possible, even with a laptop. CadFaster|QuickStep is powered by the CadFaster|Engine which includes the latest software-based polygon reduction technologies. It will run on a Windows operating system with the latest OpenGL drivers installed.

Speeding up the design workflow is easy with CadFaster|QuickStep. It helps in sharing large and complex CAD models between designers and reviewers. The users of CadFaster|QuickStep benefit from genuinely interactive viewing operations. Rotation, zooming, panning and component selections are super fast and can be done without the help of a toolbar or keyboard. The HSF file format offers fast document opening and models can be easily transferred on the net, thanks to the compressed and fully streamable media format.

"CadFaster|QuickStep showcases our advanced 3D rendering technology and we are very excited about this release", says Harri Lainio, CEO of CadFaster, Inc. "With the CadFaster|QuickStep you can view even the largest CAD assemblies with very modest hardware. This allows everybody to participate in the designing process which will help to streamline the 3D designing work flow."

The core technology of CadFaster is available for producers of CAD/CAE, simulation, animation, visualization and scientific 3D software. The solutions developed for accelerated 3D display can also be utilized, for example, in other PLM/PDM sector applications using 3D graphics.

The CadFaster|QuickStep 3D viewer is available now for free at:
