Theorem Solutions has launched its new 3D PDF Publisher and Publish 3D software for users of NX and JT applications.
The 3D PDF publisher enables both NX and JT users to create documentation containing interactive 3D data, published directly from native files.
JT users can 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 plug-in 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.
The 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 utilize available hardware and CAD licenses to publish the 3D model as a 3D PDF, and then send the files to a distribution list via e-mail, ftp or cloud-based collaboration systems.
