Adds U3D-to-PRC technology, Panoramic 360 functionality, patented point cloud simplification, support for 3D printing
LONDON, UK, Jan 23, 2018 – PDF3D’s ReportGen v2.15 has landed, bringing with it new U3D-to-PRC technology, Panoramic 360 functionality, patented point cloud simplification, and support for 3D printing.
This latest release of PDF3D’s end-user conversion tool brings with it a host of exciting new features that are now made possible thanks to new U3D-to-PRC bridging technology, only available in PDF3D’s suite of 3D PDF conversion tools.
“Most of the established vendors have moved to PRC,” explained Ian Curington, head developer of PDF3D. “This new U3D to PRC workflow provides a unique new solution that extends the functionality of the traditional U3D, enriching and enhancing the value of the 3D PDF for users in the process.”
Key features of v2.15 include the eagerly awaited panoramic 360 image functionality, which is unavailable in other conversion tools and will be as popular with photographers and drone operators as it will with forensics teams, surveyors and scientists.
In addition to U3D to PRC workflows, PDF3D’s developers have also added new support for AMF for 3D printing, e57 and RCS point-cloud format support, popular DWG 2018 versions, and improvements to a number of the existing CAD and graphics file formats. The release also includes image overlay wipe interaction, image sequence animation, CAD model layer and material enhancements using new patented point cloud technology.
“As ever, our tech is driven by the needs of our customers. These formats significantly strengthen the product for geospatial, survey, scanning and point-cloud processing and manufacturing applications, which is a key reason why our users continue to use ReportGen for 3D PDF conversion,” added Ian.
In this suite update, PDF3D have also ramped up performance in the developer toolkits: SDK and XML-API subsystems.
