Victoria, British Columbia (November 20th, 2012) – 3DA Systems Inc. has launched its new 3D PDF Converter for Revit® LTV App on the Autodesk Exchange Apps store for Autodesk Revit® Architecture, MEP and Structure. The 3D PDF Converter for Revit® LTV is integrated software working within the Revit® environment that enables users to publish rich, interactive, 3D PDF files that are significantly smaller than the original Revit® 3D models. The software uses the 3DA Technology as a one button file conversion that is easily exchangeable and viewed with the free Adobe Reader. (The converter does not require Adobe XI Pro to create 3D PDF’s)
The Autodesk Exchange Apps store is a portal to the Autodesk Revit software ecosystem, providing access to add-ins that allows designers to find and immediately download solutions to some of their more pressing challenges, specifically; 3D visualization and virtual tours, reducing design and management costs through easily communicated data, improving the accuracy and speed of estimates, data archiving for long term security and accessibility, and easily tracking changes and access all the model information for CAD users and non CAD users alike. The Autodesk Exchange Apps store was recently expanded to include apps for products including AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk Revit. Customers are now able to access The Autodesk Exchange Apps store both directly on the Web and from within Autodesk products.
The 3D PDF Converter for Revit® LTV offers you textures, in conjunction with a focused environment for topology modeling which combines a standardized interface with new tools that make it easier more than ever to create clean geometry in 3D PDF. And With one click, it lets you optionally export to 3D PDF or PRC, or merge your PRC right in to another PDF. Then view the 3D PDF file with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. This is a great tool for getting imported models into documentation, offering shape for texturing, data or other downstream operations. Note that either Adobe Acrobat® X or XI are required.
“The 3D PDF Converter for Revit® LTV App is a great example of the range of valuable add-ins easily available to customers from within the design and engineering products they use every day,” said Jim Quanci, director of the Autodesk Developer Network. “The 3D PDF Converter for Revit® LTV is a full function add-in to Autodesk Revit’s software, offering more robust functionality to all Autodesk customers in the industry who rely on Autodesk Revit® for their design projects.”
“We recognized that there was an urgent need for Revit users to join the broader movement of 3D data sharing through 3D PDF,” says Michael Schell, President of 3DA Systems. “The 3D PDF Converter for Revit® LTV fills that need, and helps save time while removing many of the obstacles when passing data across all the teams working on a project. Our goal in creating the 3D PDF Converter for Revit® LTV was for our customers to display their valuable data with the highest integrity and portability.”
