Software Free Viewer for Virtual 3D Models
Intergraph recently released its SmartPlant FreeView, a free VUE viewer, that allows users to display and navigate Intergraph 3D models and view associated plant properties.
The software can open and display any Intergraph SmartPlant 3D and SmartMarine 3D projects published as a .VUE files, the company states. A user then may walk through the plant, ship or offshore model and select any object in the view to see its associated plant properties via the MDB2 package.
Intergraph’s SmartPlant Review Publisher can convert and combine SmartPlant 3D and SmartMarine 3D, as well as other project types, into .VUE and MDB2 formats for viewing with SmartPlant FreeView or Intergraph’s full-capability visualization solution, SmartPlant Review. SmartPlant FreeView comes with a complete set of on-screen navigation controls for easy use, allowing even casual users to walk through complex 3D models with virtually no training.
