Further items of new and enhanced functionality in WorkXplore 2018 R1 include support for 4k high-resolution screens, while an additional STEP reader/translator option has been introduced that allows users to choose between the faster in-house integrated import library, and the slower, but higher quality, Datakit converter.

WorkXplore 2018 R1’s ‘Client Viewer’ has also been improved. The tool already enabled users to communicate 3D parts and assemblies to subcontractors, customers or colleagues via the internet. Now, they can also export GD&T (geometric dimensioning and tolerancing) data with the solid model.

As in many previous versions, WorkXplore 2018 R1 offers updated format support for translators. Among the 25 reader and writer formats now fully supported are Catia V6, Creo, Inventor, Parasolid, Rhino, SolidWorks, STEP, DXF, IGES and 3d PDF.
