KineoWorks Interact is a rich Graphical User Interface (GUI) toolkit that enables software vendors, System Integrators and OEMs to rapidly develop end-user software based on Kineo software components for motion-planning, collision detection and flexible cable simulation. This article reviews some of the enhancements in version 6.0.

  • Native support for Copy/Cut/Paste
  • Dynamic properties that can be added by developers to support their own data
