Subject: ADV: Actify releases 3D View 3.5. View Solid Edge, IGES 2D/3D, Catia, DWG/DXF Parasolid, VRML, STL, Solid Work

New Release: Actify's 3D CAD/CAM viewer for Windows NT/95/98.
3D View 3.5 supports:
     IGES 2D/3D,
     Solid Edge *** New
     Parasolid (UG),
     Mechanical Desktop,
     VRML 1.0/2.0
     3DStudio and
     ISO G-Code

CAD-users can share 3D models with NON-Cad users.

Actify's 3D View 3.5 enables viewing, measurement and markup
where no CAD system, no server and no translation is required.
3D View is a very useful tool for anyone that needs to
visualize, measure and markup 3D CAD/CAM models without
being required to have access to or know how to use a
full featured CAD/CAM system. It makes it easy for a
designer to share their work with many non-CAD
users (customers, suppliers, managers, sales marketing
and other engineers.

Try before you buy. A full featured trial is available at:
