Developed on the Adobe AIR platform, DaeViewer is a tiny application with a name that pretty much sums up its functionality - it allows you to view 3D image files with the DAE format (Digital Asset Exchange). It can be handled by all types of users, regardless of their skill level.
After a quick installation procedure with no special input from the user, you can check out the clean and stylish interface of DaeViewer.
Loading files into the working environment is done by using the "drag and drop" functionality. Aside from viewing the 3D images, you can make a few adjustments.
DaeViewer lets you rotate the X, Y or Z coordinates, scale the picture, zoom into it, as well as enable AutoYaw mode. These settings can be restored to their default values at any time.
Unfortunately, there are no other options available through this tool. For example, you cannot set DaeViewer to minimize to the system tray area or make it automatically run at system startup.
The program requires a low-to-moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, so it shouldn't put a strain on the computer's performance. It has a good response time and works well, without making the operating system hang, crash or pop up error dialogs; we haven't encountered any issues throughout our evaluation. All in all, DaeViewer delivers a straightforward solution to viewing DAE files.
