Output Area

The output area displays information about the loading process of models, for example.

Here you will find all operating functions of the 3DViewStation grouped on topic-related tabs.

There are three sub-panes available in the info area:

Properties: Displays context related properties for the currently selected objects and options to edit these.

Settings: Contains all configuration parameters of the 3DViewStation, sorted by profile, import, export and program settings

Licensing: Displays licensing information and offers the option for activation via an activation key, and a license checkout option for specific time periods in case of network licenses (see chapter Installation and Licensing).

Model Area

This main area displays the 3D geometry data of the actual loaded model (part or assembly).

Quick Access Toolbar

Among other things, this bar offers quick access to selected functions. The function selection can be adjusted via the last icon on the right (see chapter Quick Access Toolbar).
