What started as a seemingly simple project to share engineering data via 3D PDF quickly became a study in corporate policy and politics... Since the start of the project, it has grown in unexpected ways for users around the globe, reaching well beyond 'just engineering data exchange."

More Features of PDF Generator 3D

Rights Management with PDF Generator 3D

With the Rights Management module for PDF Generator 3D, you can provide PDF documents with comprehensive protection, specifying which users are allowed to use which functions in that document. Additionally, you can specify how long a document can remain open or be use, i.e. how long it is valid thus allowing you to retain full control over the document even after being sent.

Reader Extension with PDF Generator 3D

The 3D Reader Extensions module for PDF Generator 3D allows you to use a number of additional 3D functions in Adobe Reader. In addition to the standard functions of rotate, zoom, and move an embedded 3D model or view tree structure, the module allows you to annotate or measure the 3D model, slice, and other functions such as edit, storing and printing forms, or adding your signature to the PDF document.

With 3D PDF, we save thousands of dollars by not having to purchase additional CAD software and translators. Plus, we can work faster because we know that we can efficiently handle any file that we receive.”
