    • Catia V5 ( .CATPart, .CATProduct, .cgr R10 -> R26 )

    • Catia V6 ( 3DXML Binary, R2013x )

    • Siemens NX (JT: JtOpen 7.0 -> 10.2 )

We are using a lot of rendering optimisations and if it’s not enough we have an automatic mesh simplification tool based on GPure technology.

No, Improov works as a standalone application.

Yes, you can import different file format in the same session.

Yes, you can export in: 3DXML, VRML, OBJ, FBX

Yes, you can save the current scene for later use.

Yes, you can create an encrypted archive containing your data.

You can connect your Improov applications by using IP adresses or computer name.


If you have a reachable IP address, yes.
You can also have an online server.

If your file is smaller than 2Mb, you can stream it without having to share it manually.
Bigger than 2Mb, the files need to be directly accessible by each PC (on the local hard-drive or a shared network folder). This way you can share the models with whatever security scheme you are usually using.

Since the 3D models have to be locally accessible by each user, the model is not streamed over the internet. The only information that are shared are the synchronization commands, so the bandwidth is really light. We are regularely doing demos over mobile network data.

We have tested up to ten users at the same time, but it probably works with more.

Yes, you can protect your session by using a password.

Yes, you can collaborate with any kind of VR system at the same time, but also with the desktop windows application.

You can either buy or rent (SaaS) a license.

For more information, please contact our sales team.

Yes but only if you buy the license. This gives you access to our support web platform and software updates.

If you rent (SaaS) the license, the support/maintenance fees are already included in the pricing.

Yes, as an option, dongle or network server.

You can contact us directly or we can put you in contact with one of our local resellers depending on your location.
