PUBLISH 3D

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.

SAMPLE 3D PDF DOCUMENT

Feel free to download a sample interactive 3D PDF document, using the following buttons.

Please be aware though that these will open in a new browser window and will then need to be downloaded/saved as the interactive functionality will NOT work within the browser window.

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.

CATIA COMPOSER

Working within the Dassault Systèmes Composer architecture, the Publish 3D product 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.

APPLICABLE USE-CASES

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.
