Publish 3D enables organizations who design with CATIA V5, CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, Creo or NX, or those that want to extend the use of their JT data, to seamlessly publish that 3D data as a PDF, and take the intelligence contained within a 3D model into the world of PDF.  This means anybody can consume, view and mark up 3D data with Adobe’s ubiquitous Reader. It eliminates the need to install specialist viewing software or to be trained to use a special tool.

Publish 3D CAD via PDF to your supply chain


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.

Working within the Dassault Systèmes Composer architecture, the Publish 3D range provides interactive, batch and command line interfaces for CATIA Composer users to directly access JT data independently of any JT products, and is self-contained and version independent for improved ease of use. CATIA Composer users can now open JT data including geometry, assemblies, product structure, metadata and Product Manufacturing Information (PMI).

With the growing trend to re-use 3D design data across business enterprises, the integration of JT and CATIA Composer enables users across the enterprise to work with JT files to meet and overcome longstanding business challenges of reducing costs, improving quality and reducing timescales and delivers tangible business benefits.

Almost every department within an organization will need to discuss a product’s design at some point along the process; the question is how this can be done more efficiently and utilizing existing resource? Do you need to send data for review to colleagues within your organization, or up and down your supply chain with people who don’t have the same CAD software as you?

Model-Based Definition (MBD) is the system and techniques used to define a product as completely as possible using 3D data, eliminating the need for 2D drawings. Essentially, MBD is an annotated 3D model that includes 3D geometry, product and manufacturing information (PMI), metadata and other data elements.
