What is the best mechanism to review design data?

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?

Theorem’s Translate, Publish and Visualize products offer a range of solutions that enable you to utilize your CAD and PLM assets for the most productive process for a design review in your organization.

If you need to share data with don’t have the same CAD system, data can be reviewed in a lightweight 3D viewer such as Creo View, JT or 3D XML.

Using the 3D PDF Document Format

As part of the Publish suite of products, you could use those same CAD assets within an interactive document format like Adobe’s standards-based 3D PDF. By embedding interactive 3D viewing capability into the freely available Adobe Reader, 3D data exchange and 3D viewing become available to anyone in the world, without the need for access to a CAD application.
