Latest Publish 3D solution supports CATIA V5 R28
Theorem Solutions has announced the release of its latest 3D PDF Publisher for CATIA V5 from the Publish 3D product range. V21.1 supports from CATIA V5 R24 up to and including CATIA V5 R28, and includes a number of new and improved product features and enhancements. Theorem’s Publish 3D - 3D PDF products enable the publishing of 3D CATIA data directly from within the CATIA V5 design application in to an interactive 3D PDF document format, or a HTML5 output.
Other features and enhancements in this release include:
- Faster (up to 20x) processing for small/medium CATIA V5 datasets
- Improved CSS support for active BOM tables and highlighted parts, meaning a more dynamic and customisable template can be created.
- Options to insert images into the template -A directory can be provided and all of the images contained within will be added to the template, saving time.
- Ability to insert images into tables from external files- Enables the user to import images into buttons and image fields, allowing the creation of more dynamic and customisable templates.
The published PDF document contains embedded interactive 3D representations of the native CATIA V5 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/FTA) from CATIA V5 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 is easily integrated and can effectively become the protocol for easy, seamless document creation and communication.
Theorem’s strategic partnership with Dassault Systemes ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5, and Theorem’s Publish 3D products, allowing Theorem to continue to provide publishing solutions for the CATIA community.
