Publish 3D is a 3D PDF publishing solution for designers using CATIA, Creo, NX or for engineers wanting to extend the use of their JT data to create interactive 3D documentation. Publish 3D solutions are based on the original Adobe and vendor specific technology, making it fully compatible with Acrobat and native CAD systems.

Main Features

Improved Internal & External Communication

Publish 3D allows you to make even better use of your engineering product data and encourages rapid decision-making.

Reduction in Product Development Errors

Improved product and process quality, increased overall productivity, and improved security when collaborating with business partners.

Interactive 3D Data Published Directly From Native CAD or PLM

A simple to use and automated publishing process, for users publishing 100’s or 1000’s of documents a day.

Flexible Licensing Options

Broad range of configurations and packages to support small or large enterprise use. Flexible licensing makes 3D PDF affordable and cost effective.
