SolidView 3.0 lets users add 2D objects to their 3D designs. These 2D objects can range from a single GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance) frame to a complete set of engineering drawings. The package lets users register themselves as authors for all view and markup annotations. Collaborative review tools let users view notes, markups, and other annotations chronologically or by author. An optional VDA-FS import feature allows for the direct import, viewing, and measuring of VDA-FS files. Users can also import complete assembly structures in VRML format, view the assembly structure within SolidView, and selectively show and hide elements within the structure.
