Introducing Glovius 2D Viewer

Technical Drawings or 2D drawings as they are popularly known convey lot of instantly glance-able information. Due to the international adoption of drawing standards these drawings are especially useful in collaboration by capturing the geometric features of the components. We had many of our users asking for support to 2D files.

Today,  we are happy to announce Glovius 2D – a free* DWG and DXF file viewer.
Glovius 2D Viewer is free for all Glovius customers. Download Glovius and give the 2D Viewer a try.

Enhancements

Sometimes, you need a lower or higher precision during measurement and BOM reports. You can now set the number of decimal places based on your requirement.

Many of Glovius customers use Dropbox and Box for storing CAD files in the cloud. You can now directly open your 3D models from Dropbox and Box from the File > Open dialog.

Droppbox and Box Support

Sectioning is one of our top features in Glovius. However, most of our users want to section and measure components at the same time. Now you can cut sections and measure by turning off the plane and measure the components.

Explosion helps us understand assembly structure and gives us a peek inside the component architecture. We have rewritten and improved “Explode” in Glovius. It uses the Product Structure and Coordinate axes to explode components.

Improved Collaboration

We have made it simpler to share design review comments and notes with your team. Open a CAD model, add markup and share just the COLLAB file. When your team member opens the CAD model and the COLLAB file, Glovius loads all the markups and notes contained within.
