Sweden-based IMO AB announced a new freeware tool for their standard pump-units.
The IMO 3D Pump Model is especially developed to make it easier for designers to incorporate pumps into their own design systems, thus simplifying the engineering work.
Choice of pump is made from drop down menus, whereby the software presents a 3D model of the selected pump in the format IGES, a standard format supported by most common CAD-systems. By downloading Product View Express free of charge from PTC’s website on the Internet, chosen pumps can then easily be rotated, zoomed and dragged for a good look from all angles before further use, such as implementation into the CAD-system.
The Windows NT/2k/XP based software does not even require any installation, since it can be run directly from the CD-rom.
