With 3D PDF Converter, users can easily convert native 3D CAD data to rich, interactive 3D PDF documents -- complete with product manufacturing information (PMI), assembly structure, metadata, and views. Users can export precise BREP 3D CAD data to neutral file formats such as STEP, IGES, or STL that can be used in CAD, CAM, CAE, and other applications for downstream use in manufacturing processes. 3D PDF Converter includes 3D Reviewer -- a standalone application for advanced preparation of 3D CAD data -- before saving to 3D PDF. With 3D Reviewer, users can merge CAD files, move and delete parts, create animations and exploded assemblies, create and manage bills of material, and much more. 3D PDF Converter includes updated support for CATIA V5, Pro/E Wildfire 5.0 and Parasolid 23.
"3D PDF Converter fits seamlessly in the new Acrobat X user interface, enabling Tetra 4D customers to take advantage of significant productivity improvements for their 3D PDF workflows," said Rick Brown, senior director of product management, Acrobat Solutions. "Adobe is excited to partner with Tetra 4D to continue to enable and support these critical 3D workflows for manufacturing customers."
"I'm very impressed with the new capabilities of Adobe Acrobat X Pro. There are great new features in the software that will improve the experience for our manufacturing users," said Craig Trudgeon, CTO at Tetra 4D. "The new Action Wizard, the powerful new commenting tool pane, and the ability to share large 3D CAD files with the Adobe SendNow online service are going to give users in our market a great boost in productivity. We're excited about this release, and our technology partner, Tech Soft 3D, is already working hard on updated format support for Siemens NX 7.5, SolidWorks 2010/2011, and other formats for our Q1 2011 update."
