Eyeshot Web Service is a secure hosted service that provides access to Eyeshot engine in the cloud. The WebSocket based hosted service allows content to be passed via a SOAP interface.
EWS was designed to take advantage of Eyeshot engine capabilities from any platform. It can be used to generate high quality images from a list of CAD files, to prepare geometry for 3D printing, to build quotes based on geometry metrics, to convert CAD files and much more.
Currently it can be used for:
What we plan to add:
Eyeshot Web Service can take any standard CAD exchange file and convert it to XML. The resulting XML file will contain the complete geometry data, including:
Eyeshot Web Service can take any standard CAD exchange file and convert it to a raster image (*.bmp). The geometry can be easily translated, rotated or scaled before generating the image itself and you have full control on the background style and color.
Eyeshot Web Service can take any standard CAD exchange file and convert it to WebGL (*.html). This easily distributable datatype (viewable on any WebGL compatible browser) enables the offline viewing of CAD data.
WebSocket, the Eyeshot Web Service protocol, is not supported on Windows 7 and earlier.
The following video demonstrates how to convert a STEP file to WebGL, OBJ and STL using the ready to use C# WinForms client.
The following video demonstrates how to generate a 1280x720 pixels raster image from an OBJ file with custom rotation and background color.
The following video demonstrates how to inspect the area and mass properties of the geometry imported from IGES.
In this video you will learn how get the API key, download the ready to use C# WinForms client and compile it inside Visual Studio.
