ENTERPRISE-WIDE 3D FILE-SHARING JUST GOT EASY WITH THEOREM’S 3D PDF PUBLISHING SOLUTION

Theorem Solutions launches its brand new 3D PDF Publisher and Publish 3D software for users of NX and JT applications.

 

The first native 3D PDF Publisher for these file formats has arrived, enabling both NX and JT users to quickly and easily create documentation containing interactive 3D data, published directly from native files.

 

The process of publishing and sharing is simple. Theorem's 3D PDF Publisher for JT enables JT users to create PDF documents containing 3D data using batch or interactive processes with additional server based versions available for high volume use.

 

For the NX user the 3D PDF plugin has a "save as" PDF feature from within the NX user interface plus a batch output capability to speed up the publication process into PDF.

 

Most engineers experience the frustration of receiving a 3D file that they cannot view because they do not have the native CAD software on their workstation, PC or tablet. From this problem the 3D publishing and viewing market evolved.

 

This piece of software is arguably one of the most widely used applications in the world to view 2D data, text documents, images and 2D drawings. It already exists on most business machines around the world and is from Adobe. So take the availability of Adobe Reader and now embed 3D viewing capability. You have just made 3D data exchange and 3D viewing available to anyone in the world.

 

Now you can share your CAD data with anyone with a workstation, PC or tablet, anywhere in the world, without the need for additional installed applications and knowledge of how they work, eliminating the problem of costly user licences that all organizations are faced with.

 

The potential for enhanced collaboration within organisations and throughout the supply and distribution chains using 3D PDFs is phenomenal. This will undoubtedly lead to reduced lead-times, fewer mistakes and better products.

 

3D PDF Publisher Supports

 

The 3D PDF publisher supports 3D annotations and dimensions (PMI) from NX and JT into 3D PDF as well as supporting model based definition (MBD) processes for downstream activities in manufacturing and for use by the supply chain.

 

The working PDF document can be annotated, shared and additional media embedded. This could include text, PowerPoint files, spreadsheets, AVI movies and hyperlinks to additional online information.

 

The process can be further automated using Theorem Solutions Publish 3D package. Publish 3D will manage batch routines and will utilise available hardware and CAD licenses to publish the 3D model as a 3D PDF and then send the files to a distribution list via email, ftp or cloud based collaboration systems.

 

One exceptionally smart function of Theorem’s Publish 3D is the ability to embed the 3D data into a PDF document which contains rich information in other formats; such as text, forms, tables, images and video, plus you can package up the native CAD files in the same document publishing one PDF document with every piece of collaborative information (and an historical record of all iterations) required.

 

Once configured, Publish 3D will pull engineering data from a variety of enterprise-wide information repositories or ERP systems.

 

Embedding the native data into the PDF will allow it to become a transportation device. It is like an intelligent media rich zip-file. Another key benefit of 3D PDFs is reduced file sizes that can be emailed without the danger of it being blocked by a firewall or inbox capacity. Intellectual Property can also be exchanged in a PDF protecting the native JT and NX data.

 

A major step forward in collaborative design situations, is the ability to share data with non-CAD users to reduce ambiguity.

 

Theorem Solutions has over 20 years’ experience in providing solutions for the CAD CAM market and in addition to providing the 3D PDF solution has the expertise to develop and integrate the document, form design and automation, seamlessly into any organisation.
