Latest Publish 3D-3D PDF offers greater levels of IP protection for users

Our latest release (V19) of Publish 3D – 3D PDF for CATIA V5, NX, Creo and JT users , supporting CATIA V5 (R19-21, V5-V6R2012-2015), NX (8.5, 9.0, 10.0), Creo (2.0, 3.0) and all JT versions, is now available.

Our Publish 3D suite of products enable the publishing of 3D CAD data directly from within the CATIA V5, NX and Creo design applications in to the interactive 3D PDF document format.

The published PDF document contains embedded interactive 3D representations of the native CAD data (within pre-defined templates), offering greater levels of Intellectual Property (IP) protection and this latest version has the added IP protection feature with support for separate passwords to control the editing of the 3D PDF output.


The inclusion of a new Unified Interface (UI) in V19 provides the opportunity for multiple PDF publishing from a single data source using the selection of ready-made templates, or the option of Theorem consultancy services to create bespoke templates.  Our new UI helps the development and streamlining of translation and downstream processes by allowing engineering data to be filtered, viewed, interrogated, manipulated and translated interactively or in batches with the ability to publish user specific documentation

The Publish 3D product supports Model Based Definition (MBD) and 3D annotations and dimensions (PMI) from CATIA V5, NX, Creo and JT into the 3D PDF format.

Anybody with access to the freely available Adobe Reader®, either on a PC, tablet or smartphone can access the interactive 3D data and are able to view, mark up and interrogate the document without the use of specialist CAD software, and as 3D PDF is an ISO standard (ISO 24517-1 (PDF/E), the technology can be easily integrated and can effectively become the common denominator for document creation and communication.
