3DPDF Converter is the world's leading solution for converting native 3D CAD data into rich, interactive 3DPDF documents, including full support for accurate BREP geometry and PMI. Only 3DPDF Converter and Adobe Acrobat together allow you to control whether recipients of your 3DPDFs can measure, section, comment on or export 3D data from both Acrobat and the free Adobe Reader. Because Adobe Reader is installed on 98% of desktops worldwide, anyone who needs to view your 3D data already has all the software they need.
Trust your 3D CAD data conversion to 3DPDF from the source – tetra4D is Adobe's exclusive provider of 3DPDF technology and the ubiquitous standard for open viewing of 3D CAD data.
Share 3D CAD data with anyone.
No need to own or learn to use expensive 3D CAD systems.
With 3DPDF Converter you can accurately convert 3D data from the latest versions of CATIA, Pro/E, SolidWorks, Inventor, and all other major CAD applications to 3DPDF directly inside Adobe Acrobat.
Easily export precise BREP 3D CAD data to neutral file formats such as STEP, IGES, or Parasolid for use in downstream CAD, CAM, or CAE. Export to STL for use in 3D printing. Export the entire assembly, or select which part model(s) to convert.
Simplified change management.
Rapidly update 3DPDF documents when 3D data changes occur.
When design changes happen, you can quickly and easily update the 3D data within a 3DPDF. Once you've created the 3DPDF template, it's effortless to republish work instructions, service manuals, RFPs and any other document that contains 3D data.
Advanced BOM Management.
Create, manage & share multiple BOMs from the master CAD file.
Use tetra4D's industry-leading 3DPDF enrichment products, Animate, Publish, and Compare, or the 3D Reviewer application to create animations, exploded assemblies, manage BOM information, add external XML data, and author complex process steps. Create multiple derivative 3DPDFs to satisfy the unique BOM requirements of varied downstream consumers of 3D data.
Move from MBD to MBE.
The optimal format for expanded use of 3D throughout the enterprise.
With full support for import of PMI data such as dimensions, tolerances, and annotations, complete with intelligent PMI view states, 3DPDF Converter already provides the tools you need to share Model Based Designs with suppliers. When combined with the power of configurable 3DPDF templates, dynamic form fields, the ubiquity of the free Adobe Reader, the security of the PDF format, and the full suite of advanced 3DPDF solutions and services available from tetra4D, your company can easily and afford-ably make the transition to a Model-Based Enterprise.
Lightweight. High performance.
3D PDFs are 95% - 97% smaller than the native CAD file.
When you create a 3DPDF using 3DPDF Converter from tetra4D, you can easily share them via email, Adobe SendNow, Dropbox or any other web-based platform. And because the Adobe Reader is installed on 98% of desktops worldwide (that's over one billion!), you know that the recipient can open, view, and interact with the 3DPDF immediately without needing to download any arcane, unfamiliar viewing software that might not be around tomorrow.
Control a 3DPDF even after it's sent.
Share what you want, not what you don't.
Secure the intellectual property in your 3DPDFs by applying password security when you create them with 3DPDF Converter to ensure your 3DPDFs are only opened by the intended recipient. You can enable advanced security and collaboration features, such as measurement, mark-up, and more with Adobe Acrobat XI Pro.
