New 3D Kernel

3D functionality is revamped in CADEditorX and there was a decision to replace Open Cascade Technology with a 3D kernel. In this new version, there is:

  • faster opening of 3D files;
  • improved reading of SAT, SLDPRT, X_T, X_B, OBJ formats;
  • added support for FSAT, SAB, SMT, IPT, IFC formats;
  • added export to SAT and SAB formats;
  • improved export of STEP, OBJ, DWG, DXF formats.

Layout Detector

Sometimes customers get files with several drawing sheets in the model space. Such files can cause difficulties, for example, when it is needed to print the sheets separately. Now there is a Layout Detector feature. Its button can be found on the Advanced tab.
