Publish Creo data into an interactive 3D PDF with Theorem’s Publish 3D

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest Creo-3D PDF publisher from the Publish 3D product range.

Our Publish 3D 3D PDF products enable the publishing of 3D Creo data directly from within the design application in to an interactive 3D PDF document format, or an HTML5 output.

V21.3 supports Creo 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 and has a number of new features and enhancements, including:

  • The processing of display Curves shown in a Combined State. When displaying a layer state within a combined view, generally only the solid and annotations are processed to PDF. This will also process any curves which are needed for downstream activities (engraving or welding positions etc.)
  • Support for the translations of Offset Cross Sections, which are used to help simplify the component display.
  • Improvements to Layer Visibility and Combination states, which help improve the way geometry is displayed, ensuring less confusion for the person viewing it.
  • Addition of UI Creo Read Instance argument, giving the user more options when processing the file. This will help the user present the pdf display in a manner suitable to them.

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

The Publish 3D product supports Model Based Definition (MBD) and 3D annotations and dimensions (PMI) from Creo 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, the technology is easily integrated and can effectively become the protocol for easy, seamless document creation and communication.

Our strategic partnership with PTC ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of Creo, and Theorem’s Publish 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide publishing solutions for the Creo community.

Start your AR, MR and VR journey in Engineering at Siemens PLM Connections 2018

We will be attending this year’s Siemens PLM Connections in Phoenix, USA, from 4th– 7th June 2018.

As a long standing Siemens PLM solution partner and Vendor Member of the JT Open initiative, the team from Theorem will be on stand #126 to showcase our latest PLM productivity enhancing solutions for the Siemens NX and JT user.

Our widely used Data Exchange and Supply Chain Collaboration solutions for NX and JT are complimented by our 3D PDF publishing and Visualization tools that all support MBD for downstream processes.

You can now also utilize those same CAD and PLM assets in the latest Augmented (AR), Mixed (MR) and Virtual (VR) Reality devices with our data and device agnostic Visualization Experience Application – part of our ‘Digital Realities’ product suite.

Our Publish 3D – 3D PDF suite enables you to publish your NX and JT data to interactive 3D PDF documents that can be shared internally and externally throughout your supply chain.

Whereas our Multi-CAD plugin allows you to insert JT, NX and Creo files into a CATIA design environment, work with them, whilst maintaining associativity in CATIA back to the original JT, NX and Creo formats.

If you need your CAD assets in a lightweight data format such as 3DXML, JT or Creo View, then our Visualize 3D product suite focuses specifically on the direct translation of 3D CAD data from mechanical CAD systems for the purpose of Visualization.

All of which can be reused and optimised for ‘Digital Realities’. At stand #126 you will be able to ‘experience’ our Mixed Device Visualization Experience Application developed to run in the latest digital technologies:

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

If you haven’t yet started thinking about which technology or device is right for your CAD and PLM assets, then the Visualization Experience is the perfect app to help you start to answer the ‘ifs’, the ‘whys’ and the ‘buts’ associated with deploying these new technologies within day to day Engineering and Manufacturing.

The challenge is deciding which technology is best for you and how do you start your journey?

We recently hosted a webinar on the topic which is available to view upon registration:

http://www.theorem.com/Digital-Realities/pr-starting-the-ar-mr-vr-journey.htm

The experience utilises existing CAD and PLM data assets and can also merge data from ERP, MES, CRM and proprietary databases, adding further value to the Digital Realities application which is opening up an entirely new way to interact with Engineering and Manufacturing data up and down the supply chain, in all areas, including: Design, Manufacturing, Assembly, Training, Service and Digital Twin.

Theorem’s latest 3D PDF Publisher includes a HTML5 output

We are pleased to announce the release the latest version of our 3D PDF document publisher, which is part of the Publish 3D suite of products.

Our Publish 3D offers 3D PDF publishing for engineering and manufacturing organisations that design with 3DEXPERIENCE, CATIA V5, Creo, or NX, or want to extend the use of their JT data to create interactive 3D PDF documentation. This latest release also enables data to be output in HTML5.

Our Publish 3D suite of products is powered by Adobe’s® native 3D PDF publishing technology toolkit, which is also used in Adobe Acrobat® and Adobe Reader®.

Able to work directly from within a CAD design session, or in standalone mode, the 3D PDF publisher supports the creation of documentation into the 3D PDF format, combining 3D design data representations with full Product Manufacturing Information (PMI). Using 3D PDF during the manufacturing process removes the requirement for costly 2D drawings to be output from the CAD source data.

The IP of the native CAD data is protected in the 3D PDF format but data can still be exchanged. Passwords can be set on the documents so that only certain people can access the data.

Publish 3D is a fully integrated solution that supports Model Based Definition (MBD) processes for downstream data re-use. The solution offers enhanced functionality, which enables the design author to pass on information such as PMI, Geometry, Assembly Structure, Metadata, and Visualization attributes directly to other departments within an organisation – without the need for drawings to be produced.

The use of 3D PDF means that anybody with access to Adobe Reader can consume, view and mark up 3D data, eliminating the need to install specialist viewing software. What 3D does is remove ambiguity when reviewing product data and improve communication. Within an organisation, 3D PDF extends the use of CAD data into downstream processes.

As an ISO standard, the lightweight 3D PDF is ideal for collaboration and maintaining the original 3D geometry and product information; additional information such as spreadsheets, hyperlinks, AVIs etc. can also be attached to the 3D PDF document.

3D PDF is a great way of leveraging CAD and PLM assets. It reduces costs and time to manufacture, improves quality by eliminating potential errors due to transcription and interpretation of drawing data, it safeguards intellectual property and it can also save on expensive CAD licenses.
