BEND, OR, Nov 23, 2016 — Tech Soft 3D, leading provider of software development tools and 3D PDF solutions to the engineering industry, announced its newest addition to the Tetra4D 3D PDF product portfolio, Tetra4D Automate, an easy to deploy solution for automating the creation of interactive 3D PDF documents. The introduction of Tetra4D Automate rounds out the Tetra4D product portfolio by enabling manufacturers to easily scale their production and use of rich interactive 3D PDFs. Now companies can easily create their 3D PDF templates with Tetra4D Enrich, and then automatically generate hundreds or thousands of consistent mission-critical documents with Tetra4D Automate.
“Being able to automatically populate 3D PDF templates created with Tetra4D Enrich has by far been the most requested capability by our customers,” said Lionel Vieilly, product manager for Tetra4D at Tech Soft 3D. “Having introduced Tetra4D Enrich to the market less than a year ago, it’s clear that customers see the value in being able to easily create interactive, data rich 3D PDFs, and are eager to automate the creation of those documents. We are very happy to be able to meet this need so quickly with Tetra4D Automate.”
Tetra4D Automate provides a simple server-based solution that requires minimal customization, training, and integration support, allowing companies to start using the product immediately without any interruption or downtime to their existing processes. Tetra4D customers have been quick to realize the benefit of creating data-rich 3D PDFs to make documentation workflows more productive and effective, and with Tetra4D Automate they can efficiently scale 3D PDF usage for key manufacturing use cases with less IT effort and without the need for a costly and complex enterprise-level solution.
Being able to automate the creation of data rich 3D PDF documents on the backend of a system further streamlines documentation and communication workflows where organizations require automated processes. For example, the generation of the 3D PDF can be triggered by PDM/PLM events such as check-in or status change, and the generated 3D PDF documents can be managed by different enterprise applications such as a PLM or archiving system. Manufacturers in areas such as automotive & transportation, aerospace & defense, medical, consumer products and industrial equipment can now integrate a simple solution to create critical documents for workflows like: Product Visualization, Engineering Data Release, Design Change Notifications and Parts Catalogs.
The Tetra4D portfolio, now including Tetra4D Automate, is unique in the market as it is the only solution that can easily and quickly be deployed and integrated into manufacturers’ systems to create compelling 3D PDF documents that include all required CAD data and product information, is easy to use, supports all major CAD formats and can create 3D PDFs on the desktop or with an easily integrated server solution.
Tetra4D provides best-in-class solutions for integrating 3D PDF into engineering, manufacturing, technical publication, medical/dental, heavy construction, and AEC workflows. Users of Tetra4D solutions make 3D and related data accessible and more valuable to all disciplines and areas, both internal and external to their organization. Working with ISO, AIIM, the 3D PDF Consortium, and others, Tetra4D is a partner in driving the development of PDF, PDF/E and the PRC data formats as open standards. As an Adobe Gold Level Technology Partner, Tetra4D is the leading provider of 3D PDF technology to Acrobat users.
