ALLEN, TX, July 23, 2020 – QuadriSpace announced the immediate availability of Document3D Suite 2021. The suite includes Pages3D for technical documentation and Publisher3D for technical illustrations, both products are available separately as well. The software repurposes 3D CAD files and associated data for the rapid creation of technical documentation and graphics. The 2021 version of the software includes new features to address the overall needs of manufacturing documentation.
The latest release includes integrated support for importing JT files. JT is an industry standard format for sharing 3D CAD data. This format is widely used across industries and provides an accurate representation of 3D CAD that is easy to open with Publisher3D or Pages3D.
“JT support will enable more customers who are using a wide variety of 3D CAD tools to benefit from QuadriSpace’s technical publishing software,” states Brian Roberts, president, “JT is an excellent option for NX, Creo, and CATIA users.”
The Document3D Suite includes direct import and add-in exporters for SOLIDWORKS, Solid Edge and Inventor. The current Solid Edge CAD software includes a high-quality exporter for creating compatible QuadriSpace Model (QSM) files for use in QuadriSpace software.
Publisher3D boasts new publishing options to support the creation of graphical content for interactive electronic technical manuals (IETM). When published, SVG vector graphics include balloons and parts tables that interact with mouse input to highlight relevant parts with associated part table rows. This makes it easy to identify parts and cross reference part number or other part information. Further, 2021 offers possibilities to combine multiple viewpoints rotating about the 3D model to create spinnable SVG files to identify parts more readily from graphical content. For marketing imagery, Publisher3D 2021 includes new feature for creating multiple raster images rotated about the 3D model. These can be combined into a single GIF that animates the 3D model.
Pages3D now includes a new carousel page object that can inserted onto a document page as desired. The carousel includes clickable thumbnail views of user created illustrations. This enables documents to include a visual method for selecting with illustration, or view of the 3D model, to display.
The 2021 release includes many time saving upgrades and update. Highlighted among those include a new “Look at Face” viewpoint tool for aligning the viewpoint with an arbitrary face in the 3D model. In addition, users can not enter markup dimensions by typing them in manually, duplicate illustrations and their markups, and sort parts lists alphabetically by and user determined column. The user interface has been upgraded to support vertical docking of the storyboard panel.
In addition to these highlighted new features and hundreds of user suggested improvements, the latest release provides important upgrades to 3D file import speed, page change performance and parts table optimizations.
