Data sharing made easy

Release more value from your proprietary 3D CAD assets by using Publish to 3D PDF to create rich intelligent documents with text and 3D content. Use them for internal document sharing, or to create Work Instructions, RFQ’s, Training and Sales Documents or for supplier communication, and in support of Model Based Engineering processes.

Based on Adobe Technology

Publish 3D enables the creation of interactive PDF documents enriched with 3D content directly from your native source CAD (CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, CATIA V5, NX or Creo) or JT data. 

Based on Adobe® technology, 3D PDF is a publishing solution for organisations of all sizes who design with mechanical CAD.  

3D PDF is an enabling tool for anyone who needs to be involved in the process so they can read, view and mark-up 3D data, thus speeding up the development process to leverage investments in CAD and PLM data assets.

This allows those within the organisation and supply chain to view, interrogate and contribute to the creative process and importantly, in an increasingly competitive marketplace, gain a strategic advantage.

3D PDF can be configured via our bespoke templates to distribute CAD models to different departments removing the need for physical documents and drawings to be shared.

THE PORTABLE DOCUMENT FORMAT (PDF)

Of course, you know what a PDF file is, right? It’s a document that has been converted from something like Microsoft Word or PowerPoint so that its contents can be shared by the author; that’s it, isn’t it? Well no actually; it’s quite a bit more than that.
