PDF3D Version 1.8.0 update enables enterprise integration on 64-bit systems, enhanced team collaboration and distributed decision making through 3D PDF technical reports.

The PDF3D® suite of interactive 3D technical publishing solutions is updated to version 1.8.0, where users can navigate revealing hidden detail, all within a standard technical PDF report. Covering a wide range of applications PDF3D enables distributing interactive 3D documents to everyone with the free Adobe® Reader, enhancing team communication, collaboration, improved distributed decision making and client project reporting. The PDF3D update includes full 64-bit Windows and Linux editions along with international language support.

Highlights of PDF3D version 1.8.0 new features are:

  •     Native 64-bit versions for Windows XP, Vista and Linux, for large enterprise applications
  •     International language "Unicode" character sets for PDF pages and 3D labels, TrueType fonts
  •     Enhanced performance and efficiency for production document servers, improved textures
  •     New Product Website Launched
  •     Over 30 technical improvements

PDF3D enables creating interactive 3D presentations, including animation, especially of time-varying physical phenomena directly inside PDF files, with playback inside PowerPoint. The 3D PDF method can represent transient events such as hydrological models including flood, tides, coastal erosion and sedimentation. In Energy exploration, it enables more effective communication of oil & gas reserve extraction, seismic data interpretation, sedimentary basin formation, volcanism and mineral extraction.

High value 3D content is typically locked up in proprietary systems or formats. PDF3D allows repurposing 3D content for sharing, collaboration and training. In a 3D PDF document, interactive model is in context with important technical notes, finance information, allowing secure distribution and archive functions. Further, rich interactive media 3D views can be injected into legacy PDF files.

Providing universal access to 3D models to corporate project teams is increasing the value of 3D data leading to: lower project and product communication costs, accelerated collaboration and decision process for stake-holders, exploitation of expanding use of PDF as trusted brand for multi-media communication.

PDF3D (http://www.pdf3d.co.uk) is an innovative independent 3D technical publishing technology for 3D models viewable in PDF documents. Covering a wide range of applications from geology, aerospace, architecture, product packaging, and online sales & marketing, PDF3D makes it practical to distribute interactive 3D documents to everyone with the free Adobe Reader.

The ISO9001:2000 certified professional services team provides custom PDF3D workflows, system integration and novel user interface development services.
