The K-Display View applications from Kubotek3D are engineering-grade programs for viewing and measuring 3D models and drawings. They are said to support all major MCAD file formats and introduce multi-threading support and extensive cross-platform compatibility, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS. The applications require no additional CAD software or internet connection and is designed with a user-friendly interface, enabling manufacturing, sales, support, and service departments to more easily read the most commonly used native engineering CAD programs. These include SolidWorks, AutoCAD, KeyCreator, PTC Creo, Siemens NX, CATIA V5/V4 and neutral formats such as IGES, STEP, Parasolid X_T, ACIS SAT and STL.

The applications are powered by independent core technology to provide a range of functions in addition to viewing. These function include measuring size, distance, area and volume, and modifying the display using pan, zoom, rotate and render capabilities.
