The Suite75 CADviewer is an useful tool for all Groove users who work with CAD-files. The tool lets you review 2D CAD-drawings alone or realtime with other space members.
When “navigate together” is on, a space-member will see the same drawing as you. When a member zooms or pans the drawing, all other joined members will zoom/pan along in real-time. Collaborative viewing is fast because Groove stores all files locally.
Existing layers can be switched on and off and Xref drawings are supported.
The tool works together with the Groove filestool. It scans all the filestools in that particular Groovespace for compatible visiofiles and displays them in a treeview in the Visioviewertool. By clicking on the files in the treeview you can display the files. By clicking on the navigate together in the tool you have realtime collaborative capabilities for multiple members in the space.
The CADViewer is based on the Suite75 Shared Viewing Framework and offers real-time shared viewing of DWG/DXF files within a Groove Shared Space. This Framework is designed for a variety of viewers to be used within Groove. Any viewer based on this framework will have functionality like:
-Fast and secure standalone or realtime shared file-viewing
-Auto discovery of all viewable files within a Groove Shared Space.
-Save comments to a Discussion Tool
-Print the current view to any printer
The CADViewer was a free tool for Groove 2.5 , promoting the use of Groove within a design process and showcasing the possibilities of solutions provided by Suite75 for the building industry.
UPDATE :The development of the CADviewer tool has stopped and the tool will NOT be updated in the future
