Increased Performance for Large Model 3-D PDF Creation

Tech Soft 3D has announced major enhancements to Tetra 4D Converter, a solution for converting 3-D CAD to 3-D PDFs, and Tetra4D Enrich, a new application that enables anyone to create rich, interactive 3-D PDF documents quickly and easily directly inside of Adobe Acrobat [Professional]. Together, Tetra4D Converter and Tetra4D Enrich support multiple workflows, allowing users to package precise solid geometry and all necessary PMI into a lightweight, sharable format.

The enhancements to Tetra4D Converter include format updates for CATIA and Autodesk Inventor, as well as an added STEP AP242 export for 3-D model-based engineering. Providing STEP AP242 reading and new export capabilities means that now any user of Tetra4D solutions can generate technical data packages with an attached STEP file to share product information downstream in manufacturing workflows. Tetra4D Converter also features enhancements to provide a better user experience overall.

Tetra4D Enrich encompasses all enhancements included with Tetra4D Converter, and also features new capabilities, including:

  • Populating text fields with CAD attributes: This new feature enables the user to populate a title block with native CAD attributes
  • Performance optimization: There is now increased performance when creating and consuming Tetra4D Enrich PDF docs. As a result, the creation process is more efficient and less time consuming, especially when working with large/complex models.

Tetra4D Converter and Tetra4D Enrich support native CAD data from more than 20 file formats.
