3D PDF publishing toolkit now provides application developers an all-in-one solution for reading and writing full 3D PDF data.
Bend, OR, USA and Lyon, France - April 11, 2013 – Software developers can now fully support 3D PDF workflows with the newly-released HOOPS Publish v6.0, from Tech Soft 3D. The leading engineering software development tool provider has expanded the publishing toolkit, including the new ability to read the popular 3D PDF file format, which has been accepted for ISO publication and is rapidly gaining momentum, particularly in the defense and aerospace industries.
HOOPS Publish v6.0 enables developers to access all 3D data contained in a PDF file, including the Product & Manufacturing Information (PMI) and the complete geometric definition. 3D PDF data can then be easily repurposed and published to serve MBE (model-based enterprise) workflows, which use 3D Product definitions to affordably deploy products from concept to disposal. Rich, lightweight and easily shared on 93% of workstations globally, 3D PDF is increasingly the preferred format for MBE environments requiring rapid, seamless and secure collaboration. Furthermore, Tech Soft 3D is the only software development tool provider that enables high-value 3D PDF publishing with the exact same technology used by Adobe®, guaranteeing that 3D PDF files generated by HOOPS Publish are always 100% compatible with Adobe Acrobat® and Adobe Reader®.
Gavin Bridgeman, Tech Soft 3D Vice President of Products states, “With a variety of major industries implementing 3D PDF as the most efficient way to share information, HOOPS Publish enables our application development customers to lead the market in supporting modern MBE workflows.”
HOOPS Publish v6.0 also includes many customer-requested features:
- Interactive visual response for PMI annotations (cross-highlighting), which allows users to click on PMI to highlight the associated 3D element
- Creation of powerful reports using tables via HTML or PDF templates
- Advanced query of PDF templates
- Customizable setting for initial model views
- Enhancements for handling multi-page PDF documents and templates
