3D PDF for CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE users enables the creation of documents enriched with 3D content directly from native 3DEXPERIENCE data
Theorem’s 3D PDF Publisher for CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE offers a 3D PDF publishing solution for CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE users. Part of the Publish 3D product suite 3D PDF for CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE offers an ISO Standard: 32000 based publishing solution for organisations who design in the CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE modelling application.
It enables companies of all sizes to create and share PDF files containing 3D representations of their CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE design geometry with members of their organisations and supply chains whilst securing the intellectual property of their designs. It also allows for improved communication throughout the product design to manufacture and to market processes, opening access to data and information that previously would only be available to ‘Engineering’ to numerous multidisciplinary application areas that can benefit from 3D geometry and product structure data.
3D PDF enables users to share their engineering data created in CATIA with departments who do not have CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE but need a 3D representation. It enables manufacturing, service departments, technical publications, purchasing, sales and marketing departments to use 3D content inside their PDF documentation based on their use case.
A 3D PDF document has many features and functions available to the user that further enhances and simplifies the data sharing and collaboration process.
Utilizing the 3D PDF document format to share CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE design data, whether it’s used to create: Purchase Orders, Request for Quotations, Engineering Change Requests, Inspection Reports, Instruction Manuals or even Sales and Marketing brochures, allows for improved communication throughout the product design to manufacture and to market processes. 3D PDF opens access to CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE data and information that previously would only be available to ‘Engineering’.
Members of all departments (Engineering, Purchasing, Quality, Sales and Marketing, Support) with access to the freely available Adobe Acrobat Reader® supported on desktop, laptop, tablet and phone can now consume, view and mark up the 3D representations of the original CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE design data, eliminating the requirement for paper documents and the need to install and train users on specialist viewing software.
Using Theorem’s 3D PDF Publisher for CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, create comprehensive PDF documents which combine a range of data from internal systems such as:
Theorem’s 3D PDF for CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE supports the processing of Model Based Definition (MBD) information when publishing 3D PDF documents from CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE data.
3D annotations, dimensions (PMI/FTA/GD&T), assembly structure, geometry, views, and attribute data (where available) are published to the 3D PDF document at the point of creation helping to streamline the design and manufacturing process into a paper free digital process. U3D and PRC data transfer methods are supported.
