Free CMS Viewer

CMS Viewer allows users to view and verify the exact content of structural steel component DSTV- NC files (nc1).

CMS Viewer provides both a 2D/3D graphical representation as well as the standard text format representation of DSTV and nc1 files within the same interface, which facilitates communication and collaboration between structural steel detailers, drafters and fabricators.

CMS Viewer enables graphical scrolling through DSTV files in a browser like interface, allowing users to rapidly view contents of any number of files in the same directory.

With CMS users can check dimensions, view details such as holes, patterns, and cutting angles, and rotate the part to view it from any angle. The DSTV text view is interlinked with the graphical view, thus any element that is highlighted in one view is highlighted in the other.
