Analyzing parts and organizing manufacturing with Tebis Viewer systems

    Real processes supported in the virtual computer world

    Tebis Viewer systems connect the virtual CAD world with real processes in planning, manufacturing and assembly. They display Tebis CAD files with all the information needed to analyze parts. This allows employees access to the current version status at all times. This improves the flow of information from planning to assembly, eliminates unnecessary requests for additional information and establishes smooth processes. With its simple and intuitive operation, the Viewer is also suitable for users with minimal CAD/CAM experience: for example, with costing and tool assembly.

    Tebis Viewer systems also offer many advantages in NC-supported manufacturing: It helps to ensure that the right tools are provided in the tool crib and gives the machine operator the manufacturing data needed for tools, clamping and all NC programs as they will run on the machine. Viewer systems are designed for parts of any size and can be extended with modules.

    • Import, visualize, organize and structure data and supplement with your own comments
    • Dimension 3D model (coordinates, lengths, diameters, etc.) to determine areas and volumes
    • Analyze CAD geometry and quality (slopes, curvatures, planar and rounded surfaces, defects)
    • Preview surface defects that can be automatically corrected (risks, segments, gaps)
    • Compare version status
    • Interactively create cutting curves
    • Access manufacturing databases (tools, virtual machines, machining sequences)
    • View NC programs with milling parameters in the Job Manager and call up NC information
    • Simulate and collision-check toolpaths
    • Adjust technical parameters in toolpaths
    • Output NC programs via postprocessors
    • Prepare NC documentation in XML format
    • Determine information on the machine, setups and tools
    • Follow machining with a simulation of material removal

    The Tebis Viewer systems

    Viewer for analysis (Standard)

    Obtain information from the virtual 3D model in costing, manufacturing and assembly and work paperless – with no need to print drawings or documentation. The Tebis Viewer gives you digital access to current information about the part, and you can analyze it right in the Tebis CAD file. 

    • Select different part views
    • Multi-window operation
    • Quickly determine important information on manufactured and purchased parts
    • Obtain dimensions like coordinates, lengths, diameters, etc.
    • Edit curves and points
    • Use comments

    Viewer with CAD (Pro)

    Our mid-range viewer gives you quick access to CAD functions for curves and extensive functions for geometry and quality analysis in all departments and areas. This allows you to plan manufacturing and work reliably throughout the process. You can quickly identify relevant details with file comparisons. Users can make plans derived from process libraries that contain the manufacturing environment and manufacturing expertise.

    • Freely create, edit and modify curves
    • Dimension 3D models and determine areas and volumes
    • File comparisons
    • Analyze CAD geometry and quality: Determine slopes, curvatures, planar and rounding surfaces and defects
    • Analyze areas and volumes
    • Preview surface problems that can be automatically corrected
    • Includes the complete function scope of Viewer Standard

    Viewer with CAD and NC Job Manager (NC)

    Work digitally from end to end in NC manufacturing with Tebis Viewer NC. Machine operators can access all relevant manufacturing information, including CAD blank geometry, CAD finished part geometry, clamping devices and tools. Switch tools for specific orders. You can realistically simulate toolpaths and ensure collision-free manufacturing – independent of programming. 

    • Access manufacturing-related process libraries (tools, clamping devices, virtual machines, machining sequences)
    • Determine information on the machine, setups and tools and change if necessary
    • View NC programs with milling parameters in the Job Manager and call up NC information
    • Simulate toolpaths and check for collisions
    • Adjust technical parameters in toolpaths
    • Check NC programs and output in the correct control format
    • Prepare NC documentation in XML format
    • Follow machining with simulation of material removal
    • Includes the function scope of Tebis Viewer Standard and Pro

    Precision is key

    There are now significantly fewer queries. The entire manufacturing process is now faster: "This means that we produce more parts in the same amount of time."

    CAD interfaces for smooth data transfer

    Establish connections to other CAD systems via direct and standard interfaces. Our CAD interfaces ensure a smooth, two-way and extremely reliable data transfer.

    Preparing CAD models for manufacturing

    The better a CAD model is prepared for NC manufacturing, the less time and effort needs to be invested in NC programming. In many cases, NC programming can proceed automatically in Tebis.

    CNC Simulator

    The Tebis CNC Simulator lets you fully plan, program and check your NC machining operations in the Tebis CNC programming environment. All of the components in your real manufacturing environment – including tools, machines, clamping devices and units – are stored down to the last detail as digital twins in the virtual programming environment.
