Intergraph(R) Announces Release of FreeView(R) to View CADWorx(R) 3D Plant Design Models and Their Information on Apple(R) iPad(R), the First Mobile Solution for CADWorx Plant Suite
June 5, 2014 - LAS VEGAS, NV
Intergraph has announced the release of its Intergraph FreeView® application that lets users of Intergraph CADWorx Design create, publish, and share intelligent AutoCAD®-based CADWorx Plant models for viewing on an Apple® iPad®. Rick Allen, president, Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions, made the announcement during his keynote address to over two-hundred (200) attendees at CADWorx Analysis University 2014 (CAU2014) taking place at HxGN LIVE in Las Vegas, June 2 - 5, 2014.
Intergraph FreeView is free of charge, and allows for truly portable review and collaboration by letting iPad users access the intelligent information contained in their published models. Intuitive tools let users modify views by isolating sections of the model based on line numbers and component type, as well as easily hide or adjust the transparency of individual or groups of components.
The three-finger view selection makes easy work of changing between various plan, elevation, and isometric views. With a simple finger-tap selection, users can easily view animations and model markups from the published model.
"We have seen a real need for users to share information on the go in ways that are both intuitive and familiar to them," said Patrick Holcomb, EVP of Global Business Development and Marketing. "We are in an ever more connected world where tablets are becoming the norm. That is why we are excited about today's launch of Intergraph FreeView for iPad because it allows mobile stakeholders to effectively collaborate quickly and easily - wherever they are."
In the coming months, the capabilities of Intergraph FreeView will be extended to allow the viewing of Intergraph Smart 3D models. This product strategy will provide a single easy-to-use iPad free viewer that can be used by all CADWorx and Smart 3D users for their basic viewing needs throughout the asset lifecycle.
For true ease of sharing, Intergraph FreeView for iPad also allows users to download their published models from email or from cloud content vendors such as Apple iCloud® or Box® so the most up-to-date models are available at any time, and anywhere, as needed. Intergraph FreeView for iPad will be offered on the Apple iTunes® Store free of charge at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/intergraph-freeview/id882831755?ls=1&mt=8.
