tetra4D, a division of Tech Soft 3D, announced the latest release of 3D PDF Converter, a solution for creating 3D-based documents to support Model Based Definition (MBD).
New support has been added for Autodesk Inventor 2014, CATIA V5-6R2013 (R23), Rhino 4.5, Solid Edge ST6, SolidWorks 2014, and NX 9.0, among others.
“This release of 3D PDF Converter has significant advantages for anyone who needs to adhere to ASME Y14.41 and other PMI standards,” says Bryan Fischer, president of Advanced Dimensional Management and MBD360. “It will now be possible for organizations of any size to leverage 3D PDF for dynamic 3D annotation with visual feedback, without the need for traditional 2D drawings. This significantly reduces costs and complexity, and increases the communication index of the dataset. The dataset provides information in a manner that is an order of magnitude easier to understand.”
“We are very pleased to announce this critical milestone for delivering on the commitment we have made to our customers to continue to lead the market with cost-effective solutions for deployment of 3D PDF-enabled workflows,” said Dave Opsahl, tetra4D president and vice president of corporate development for Tech Soft 3D. “With the widespread adoption we are now seeing across industries throughout their supply chains, we expect this release will accelerate 3D PDF use and adoption significantly.”
