“we’ve cut the time we spend on documentation by 25% – 50%, freeing our engineers to focus on what’s most important”

It’s time to stop pasting static CAD screenshots into PowerPoint. With Envision Creator anyone can import and manipulate 3D CAD models to create custom views and perspectives which show precisely what they want their audience to see. And it only takes a couple of hours to learn how to use it – perfect for team members who don’t have CAD software or training.

With Envision you can combine 3D CAD visualization with photos, vector graphics, text, charts, symbols, and more. You can leverage model metadata to create BOM tables in an instant, and show accurate dimensions.

  • Rotate, pan, and zoom your model to get exactly the right angle
  • Show exploded views with linear, spherical, and cylindrical explode modes
  • Ghost, hide, and isolate individual components to focus your audience
  • Use cutting planes to create precise cross-section views
  • Use model metadata to create BOM tables and smart labels
  • Show essential dimensioning data
  • Save and edit visualizations with ease

seeing is believing. interacting is understanding

You don’t just illustrate product information with Envision, you let people interact with and understand the models themselves. Whatever type of documentation you’re creating, when you publish a document to the Envision cloud, your audience can access it instantly through any browser.

And, with a single click, they can lift 3D models out of the document and interact with them to view them from any angle, view metadata, and even isolate or hide individual components.

  • Manufacturing work instructions
  • Product data sheets
  • Specification documents
  • Maintenance manuals
  • Assembly guides
  • Presentations
  • Project status updates
