Visual Technology Services has announced the release of PDF3D 2.8.0, with new features and enhancements that focus on 3D reporting.
"We have been working closely with earth science users and engineers over the past few months to create solutions that enable the easy communication of complex technical data to remote teams. Many new features have already been welcomed by scientists and we're delighted with the feedback so far," said Ian Curington of PDF3D.
PDF3D software is used for technical 3D workflows in life sciences, marine, civil, environmental engineering projects, earth resource exploration, numerical modeling, and general scientific data visualization reporting. The new release includes updates to ReportGen, plug-ins and the software developer toolkit PDF3D-SDK.
Geospatial engineering features have also been added, and include KML, GeoTIFF and GeoVRML for improved reporting. Enterprise and commercial integration partners will find extended parameters for refined rich document control during batch production.
Other enhancements include an improved NURBS Smooth Surface control; large 3D Point Cloud simplification; improved view, light, and interaction functions for 3D scenes; and multi-language support including Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian and Spanish.
