London, UK (PRWEB) April 26, 2007
Visual Technology Services announces version 1.2.1 of the PDF3D™ SDK Toolkit, including bridges to 3D technical graphics and application platforms including VTK, AVS/Express™, Coin3D and Open Inventor™. By enabling these bridges PDF3D empowers product communication, knowledge transfer and collaborative sharing of 3D technical content to downstream stakeholders across the enterprise leveraging Adobe® Acrobat™.
Significant challenges with globalization and supply chain communication creates the need to enhance and simplify the exchange of complex 2D and 3D content with supporting information. Leveraging the Adobe® Acrobat™ infrastructure PDF3D™ begins to contribute value to the simplification of the problem of pushing engineering information beyond their management systems and firewall to joint venture participants, sourcing partners, sales, other engineering participants, manufacturing, training, service and support. Simplistically it is a problem of archiving, sharing, and delivering complex technical data easily both inside and outside the corporate firewall.
PDF3D support for interactive Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions and scientific analysis solutions allow our customers to easily share 3D snapshots of content, organize and integrate the different phases of a product's lifecycle using the common Adobe platform. Support for non-complex tools (such as the free Adobe Reader) to view and manipulate 3D content allows companies to shift away from traditional models of PLM and moving towards leveraging the proven value of embedded interactive 3D solutions directly within reports and project documents for more effective decision making and accelerated product development, launch and support as companies push to accelerate time to market.
PDF3D further expands the sharing of multiple data types with 3D content by announcing support for the several 3rd party application development environments. Communication of multiple data types such as spatial, 3D content and key supporting technical detail within the secure Adobe document management platform and free PDF viewer is now becoming a reality for our customers who view and need to understand 3D multimedia content within today’s collaborative business communication process. An example of this is an organisation with 3D data stored in an Oracle® database needing to deliver secure documents containing multimedia 3D content and supporting technical documentation to their clients.
