Theorem Updates NX to 3D PDF Publisher

STAFFORDSHIRE, UK, Jan 23, 2018 – Theorem Solutions has announced the latest release of its NX to 3D PDF product from the Publish 3D range.

V20.2 supports NX 9.0, 10 and 11 and has a number of new and improved product features and enhancements including added support for the direct writing of CAD data to HTML5, processing NX assembly arrangements and the processing of body and face translucency.

Theorem’s Publish 3D product enables the publishing of 3D NX data directly from within the NX design application in to the interactive 3D PDF format.

The published PDF document contains embedded interactive 3D representations of the native NX data (within pre-defined templates) which is consumable by anyone. It offers greater levels of intellectual property (IP) protection with support for document rights management (DRM) ranging from separate passwords to control the 3D PDF output, to full integration with DRM systems.

The Publish 3D product supports the publishing of model based definition (MBD) data, 3D annotations (PMI) and model views from NX into the 3D PDF format.

The inclusion of Theorem’s Unified Interface (UI) with Theorem’s Publish 3D On Demand product provides the opportunity for multiple PDF publishing from a single data source. A user can select templates from the samples delivered with the Theorem software or can use the option of Theorem consultancy services to create bespoke templates based on specific requirements. Theorem’s UI helps the development and streamlining of translation and downstream processes by allowing engineering data to be filtered, viewed, interrogated, manipulated and translated interactively or in batches with the ability to publish user specific documentation.

Anybody with access to the freely available Adobe Reader, either on a PC, tablet or smartphone can access the interactive 3D data and are able to view, mark up and interrogate the document without the use of specialist CAD software. As 3D PDF is an ISO standard (ISO 24517-1 (PDF/E), the technology can be easily integrated and can effectively become the protocol for easy, seamless document creation and communication.

Theorem’s strategic partnership with Siemens ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of NX, and Theorem’s Publish 3D products, allowing Theorem to continue to provide publishing solutions to the NX community.
