Publish JT data directly into interactive 3D PDF’s with Theorem’s Publish 3D

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest JT to 3D PDF product from the Publish 3D range, with new and improved product features and enhancements, and support for JT 10.x.

Our Publish 3D – 3D PDF products enable the publishing of JT data directly into the interactive 3D PDF document format.

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

New enhancements for V21.1:

  • The ability to add images into tables which, rather than use text to describe individual parts in a BOM table, can be used to make clearer which parts are in question. Using images also makes a template more visually appealing for the end user.
  • When creating a new template, all images can be saved to a single directory and one command used to import them all, rather than having to import each individual image.
  • More dynamic and customizable templates can now be created with improved CSS support for active BOM tables and highlighted parts.

Our Unified Interface (UI) 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.  The 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 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. As 3D PDF is an ISO standard (ISO 24517-1 (PDF/E), the technology can be easily integrated and can effectively become the protocol for easy, seamless document creation and communication.

Through a partnership with Siemens, we can ensure that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of JT and Publish 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide 3D publishing solutions for the JT community.

Theorem’s latest Visualize 3D- CATIA V5-Creo View Adapter supports CATIA V5 R28

We are pleased to announce the release of our latest Visualize 3D Adapter for CATIA V5 to Creo View users supporting up to and including CATIA V5-6R2014-2018.

For those that need to work with, or share, visualization data as part of design and manufacturing processes, the Theorem Visualize 3D suite of products offers direct translation of 3D data for the purpose of Visualization.

Our Visualize 3D brand supports lightweight data formats with a focus specifically on the direct translation of 3D CAD data from mechanical CAD systems for the purpose of Visualization, enabling users to work with and share data directly between different CAD and Visualization applications and are aimed at creating visualization data for users of digital mock-up, desktop and tablet viewing applications.

Using Visualize 3D as a direct conversion tool between CATIA V5 to Creo View reduces processing time, simplifies integration and retains accuracy of the model.

V21.1 now supports up to and including CATIA V5-6R2014-2018 and Creo View 4.2.

V21.1 can be used independently of WindChill, or integrated into WindChill, allowing CATIA V5 managed data to be published and visualized on demand. As the Creo View data output is then synchronized with the CATIA source, an accurate up-to-date version of the design is always available, reducing costly errors.

The CATIA V5 to Creo View suite helps to secure Intellectual Property, but at the same time supports a rich enough set of design data intelligence so that suppliers have all of the information required to complete their job.

Our strategic partnerships with Dassault Systemes and PTC ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5 and Creo View, and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions for the CAD community.

Theorem’s Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality Experiences to be showcased at GPDIS 2018

Our participation for the 5th consecutive year at the Global Product Data Interoperability Summit 2018 taking place in Phoenix, Arizona 17th -20th September 2018 underscores our commitment to providing first-class interoperability solutions for the worldwide aerospace industry.

You’ll find us this year on stand #29, where we will be demonstrating our latest visualization innovation that utilises existing CAD and PLM assets in Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality devices – known as Digital Realities.

Digital Realities is an out of the box, data and device agnostic, task focused application delivering engineering and manufacturing experiences to the latest digital technologies for:

  • Visualization
  • Design Reviews
  • Manufacturing Build
  • Factory Layout

Engineering and Manufacturing businesses are increasingly looking into the benefits of using AR, MR and VR to improve processes and collaboration, cut costs and make access to data easier. Digital Realities is helping to make that possible with a single application.

Our Principal Technical Consultant Trevor Leeson will be giving a presentation on ‘The Challenges of Working with Digital Twins’, which will discuss how to exploit your existing CAD & PLM assets within the emerging world of Augmented Reality, and the use of digital twin technology for design review, service & maintenance and manufacturing activities.

The experiences utilise existing CAD and PLM data assets from CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, CATIA V5, CREO, Inventor, JT, NX, SolidWorks and STEP and can also merge data from ERP, MES, CRM and proprietary databases which adds further value to the experience.

By making these low cost devices accessible, and democratising the use of AR, MR and VR technology, Theorem’s Experiences are opening up an entirely new way to interact with Engineering and Manufacturing data up and down the supply chain.

The Digital Realities App currently supports the following devices:

  • Augmented Reality (AR) – Windows 10, iOS and Android Tablets and Smartphones
  • Mixed Reality (MR) – Microsoft HoloLens
  • Virtual Reality (VR) – HTC Vive and Oculus Rift

Stop by stand #29 and try out the experiences on the devices for yourself.

We will also be available to offer expert advice on our range of 3D PDF document publishing solutions, CAD Visualisation solutions and STEP translators which all offer significant benefits to aerospace OEMs and supply chain networks.
