About Eyeshot Ultimate

Add CAD capabilities to your .NET applications.

Eyeshot Ultimate is a .NET control that allows developers to easily add CAD functionality to WinForms and WPF applications. It provides tools for building geometries from scratch, analyzing them using the finite element method and generating toolpaths from the data. Geometries can also be imported or exported using CAD exchange file formats.

Eyeshot Key Features

  • Optimized shader-based rendering for OpenGL and DirectX
  • Advanced GPU effects: real-time shadows, reflection panes, silhouette edges, optimized transparency and multi-layer texturing
  • WorkUnit class: asynchronous modeling made easy
  • Asynchronous import/export of CAD exchange files
  • Surface reconstruction from point clouds
  • Analytical hidden lines removal
  • 2D/3D Finite Element Analysis
  • Area and mass properties
  • Multi-touch support
  • FEA mapped meshing
  • Construct 3D volumes from any stackable set of images such as MRI and CT
  • Design-time editors to customize layout and appearance settings
  • A few DLLs compiled against AnyCPU for easy deployment

Eyeshot comes in two different editions: Professional and Ultimate. The Professional Edition includes wireframe curves, dimensions, point clouds, meshes and basic CAD exchange file import/export. The Ultimate Edition adds nurbs curves and surfaces, manifold BRep and advanced CAD exchange files import/export. It also includes polyhedral object booleans, manifold BRep booleans and Finite Element Analysis.
