Since 2000, a continuous series of technology demonstrations have driven implementation of the digital thread concept and verified the STEP-NC and related standards used by it.
These examples show the latest digital inspection server, with 3D geometry viewing on almost any device capable of browsing the web- including desktop computers, smartphones, tablets, and even some modern HMI consoles.
These examples show early WebGL viewing of STEP assemblies that we built around 2012 for the DARPA-sponsored National Simulation Service, that has
Look at our digital thread work for the latest capabilities. Our latest digital thread server is a dynamic server that produces smaller JSON on the fly, allows greater interaction with the STEP data, and uses modern responsive frameworks for better display on mobile.
