More-PDF adds PDF3D Creation for ANSYS Engineering Analysis Users

New More-PDF PDF3D extension plugin to ANSYS Workbench provides analysis result capture and 3D PDF reporting for audit and offline secure viewing.

LONDON, Jan. 7, 2020 — (PRNewswire) —

LONDON, Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Visual Technology Services, known for PDF3D software, and engineering services company 7tech GmbH jointly announce More-PDF, a new extension plugin for ANSYS Workbench - the standard analysis platform for world-wide computer-aided engineering (CAE). The new More-PDF plugin creates multi-page templated 3D PDF documents directly from within the Workbench environment and also standalone for other post-processors. The design of More-PDF is optimal for engineering analysis reports and workflows, creating complete reports.

"The new More-PDF plugin is significant because it fulfills under-served PDF analysis reporting functions," comments DI. Christoph Schlegel, principal engineer and founder of 7tech GmbH. "PDF reports are used every day for multi-page client reports, now these can contain 3D visualizations of analysis results in context, avoiding special viewer installs. In pre-release it's already had a great reception in our analysis community."

By integrating 3D PDF generation into Workbench and related post-processors, More-PDF menus provide a preview for the multi-page report or drawing page templates with visual placement of 3D viewports and legend information. For mechanical analysis the results contours are exported directly. The stand-alone menu option can be used for ANSYS CFD-PrePost (CFX, Fluent), TurboGrid mesh generation, ANSYS Electronics Desktop (Maxell and HSFF) via AVZ from ANSYS Viewer, or VRML results for pre-Workbench users including Mechanical-APDL plots.

With 5x superior file compression of 3D PDF over AVZ, reports are more easily shared, saving in document storage and transport. As illustration of superior file-compression, a typical mechanical stress result of 900 Mb may be saved to a 45 Mb ANSYS-AVZ file, while publishing to 3D PDF achieves a much smaller 9 Mb file, and viewed with a standard 3D PDF Reader. For even further file reduction, the More-PDF system can invoke a 3D mesh simplification post-process filter.

More-PDF helps engineers create complex interactive visualizations allowing review of what-if studies, query values, zoom to details, investigate detailed properties in simulation results, collaborate with peers, and achieve a deep understanding of analysis results in context of a complete report. Peers and clients are able to add mark-up comments, save and share views, while recording audit snap-shots of simulation results in the standard PDF document format.

More-PDF is available from more-pdf.com, with a free demo version planned for the ANSYS App Store.
