Reduce the Cost of Data Sharing with 3DPDF

Why Use 3D PDF?

3D PDF enables you to share your CAD data to non-CAD users. It does that by creating a rich 3D model of your 3D CAD inside a standard PDF document. All you need is Adobe Reader to open and visualize the 3D, and any 2D content you have created.

Chances are you already have Adobe Reader on your PC, Laptop or Tablet, if not, it’s free to download. As most companies already use PDF documents there is no need to install any software, it’s already supported by your IT systems, meaning you can use it immediately, and of course any suppliers or colleagues can use it too for free.

There’s no learning curve, it’s a PDF document, like any other, except it has rich 3D content too.

Where can you use a 3DPDF document?

Data Sharing

Because all PC users can already consume PDF documents there is no software to buy or install. This applies internally and with customers and suppliers. Eliminating the cost of sharing data.

Model Based Definition

As you move to eliminate drawings by moving to model based engineering 3D PDF documents can deliver rich 3D Model Based Definition files for free and instantly consumable by manufacturing or your suppliers

Request For Quotation

Eliminate the ambiguity of documents containing .jpg images or PowerPoint slides, by delivering a rich 3D PDF which can be viewed and interrogated in 3D.

Work Instructions

To create rich Work Instruction documents containing text and 3D model data to guide front line staff.

Promotional Materials

For Sales and Marketing document creation, rather than a 2D jpeg, you have an interactive 3D model.

Technical Data Packages

To create Technical Data Packages (TDP) containing all types of engineering content, including native CAD files, 2D drawings, STEP files, costing and product specification data and of course a 3D PDF.
