Automatically Create Data Rich 3-D PDFs

Tech Soft 3D, offers its latest addition to the Tetra4D 3D PDF product portfolio, Tetra4D Automate, an easy to deploy solution for automating the creation of interactive 3-D PDFs. The introduction of Tetra4D Automate rounds out the Tetra4D product portfolio by enabling manufacturers to easily scale their production and use of rich interactive 3-D PDFs. Now companies can easily create their 3-D PDF templates with Tetra4D Enrich, and then automatically generate hundreds or thousands of consistent mission-critical documents with Tetra4D Automate.

Tetra4D Automate provides a simple server-based solution that requires minimal customization, training and integration support, allowing companies to start using the product immediately without any interruption or downtime to existing processes. "Tetra4D customers have been quick to realize the benefit of creating data-rich 3-D PDFs to make documentation workflows more productive and effective, and with Tetra4D Automate they can efficiently scale 3-D PDF usage for key manufacturing use cases with less IT effort and without the need for a costly and complex enterprise-level solution," said a company spokesperson.

Being able to automate the creation of data rich 3-D PDF documents on the backend of a system further streamlines documentation and communication workflows where organizations require automated processes. For example, the generation of the 3-D PDF can be triggered by PDM/PLM events such as check-in or status change, and the generated 3-D PDF documents can be managed by different enterprise applications such as a PLM or archiving system. Manufacturers in areas such as automotive and transportation, aerospace and defense, medical, consumer products and industrial equipment can now integrate a simple solution to create critical documents for workflows like: product visualization; engineering data release; design change notifications; and parts catalogs.

"The Tetra4D portfolio, now including Tetra4D Automate, is unique in the market as it is the only solution that can easily and quickly be deployed and integrated into manufacturers' systems to create compelling 3-D PDF documents that include all required CAD data and product information. It is easy to use, supports all major CAD formats and can create 3-D PDFs on the desktop or with an easily integrated server solution," said the spokesperson.
