Agile Software’s subsidiary Cimmetry Systems Corporation has launched AutoVue version 19, collaborative visualization software that provides access to native files for CAD geometry, object level attributes, and product structure.
The new version supports AutoCAD 2006 and MicroStation v8 CAD, as well as Acrobat 7. It also provides full collaborative visualization support for Gerber, ODB++ and EDIF manufacturing systems. AutoVue 19 provides new minimum distance measurement tools, improved board entity viewing functionality, and multipage BOM generation capabilities. Its 3-D compare functionality enables users to detect non-graphical file properties at the assembly or part level.
