KISTERS Automation Server (KAS) is a server-based solution for the automated batch processing of 3D data. KISTERS Automation Server can be integrated with any leading systems, like PDM systems or SAP.
The Kisters Automation Server KAS is the ideal complement for all members of the 3DViewStation product family when it comes to automating repetitive procedures. Mostly it is about the conversion of native 3D CAD data into the lightweight 3DVS data format. For example, a 5 GB Catia board, which takes 5 minutes to load in native load mode, can be loaded in just 1 second after conversion to the 3DVS format.
3D import of native & neutral CAD, i.e.:
Catia, NX, Creo, Solidworks, SolidEdge, Inventor, SAT, Parasolid, JT, STEP, 3D PDF, Revit, GLTF, 3DXML, VRML...
STEP, JT, 3D PDF, 3MF, Parasolid, VRML
2D import of drawings, office, pictures:
Catia CatDrawing, NX 2D, Creo DRW, Solidworks slddrw, DWG, DXF, HPGL, 2D PDF, TIFF, JPEG...
DXF, PDF, CGM, PNG, SVG, BMP
KISTERS Automation Server covers a broad spectrum of usage scenarios. PDM system-controlled conversions of native 3D CAD assemblies to the internal 3DViewStation format 3DVS, to 3D-PDF or STEP form the basis of its functionality. And KISTERS Automation Server processes all tasks with the same high speed and reliability we have come to expect from 3DViewStation.
The use of thumbnails as preview images for result lists in PLM systems makes much more sense than rendering entire 3D models. These preview images are seamlessly generated as a KISTERS Automation Server background task.
Frequently a PLM system manages parts of an assembly in a neutral or in the native format, while the structure is managed virtually, and is therefore available in the database only. KISTERS Automation Server offers a solution for this approach, by positioning and aligning all required components on the server, and then rendering the resulting structure. The result can be exported in STEP, JT or 3D PDF format.
Sometimes, however, the product structure of an incoming assembly needs to be analyzed automatically, and created as a native version in the PDM system. Not a problem for KISTERS Automation Server: a specialist function converts and returns the structure of a CAD assembly in XML format.
