An important part of any CAD system are tools for viewing documents and communication, whether within the company, with external suppliers or customers. Siemens PLM Software is supplied for this purpose several applications, which are divided according to the use. These include a freely distributable programs for viewing documents Solid Edge or packages PCF. PCF files themselves are stored in compressed form both 3D models and 2D drawings, as well as other documents that are important for trouble-free communication and commenting on documents sent for cooperation.

In these programs, it is possible to measure both 2D and 3D, insert dynamic cutting plane, comment and view PMI dimensions and annotations. PCF file is saved directly from Solid Edge and can be sent directly via email. Annotated 3D model or 2D drawing can be returned to the author for revision.

Solid Edge Viewer is included with every installation of Solid Edge as a free viewer native data (par, DFT, ASM and PSM) and enables viewing NX models (PRT) JT format, PCF packages and DWG and DXF formats. This viewer is designed for internal use within the company.



It is also a free viewer that works with PCF package. The user who PCF package forms, may authorize, whether it will be possible to measure data in XpressReview and generate dynamic cuts. Notepad and can always view. XpressReview also allows you to view JT formats, DWG, DXF, DWF and CGM.

JT2Go browser uses for work JT formats (3D) and CGM (the drawings), which in this area have become a worldwide standard. Their advantage is the quality of the description of the geometry at maximum efficiency data volume, which is the main priority when exchanging data over the Internet.
