3DA Systems Inc., is a developer 3D technology partner for Adobe® Acrobat®, today announced the release of several new 3D PDF™ Plug-ins for Autodesk® Revit Products including: 3D PDF™ Converter for Revit® LT Visualization, and 3D MDX for Revit®. Running directly inside the CAD application, these new plug-ins enable design creators to directly convert 3D CAD data to rich, interactive 3D PDFs for easier visualization, collaboration, and shared design reviews, with their extended teams. Autodesk product users can purchase the plug-ins standalone or with add Adobe® Acrobat® XI to turn on additional collaboration and security features in the Free Adobe® Reader®. 3DA Systems plans to add additional Plug-ins to their growing portfolio of 3D PDF Solutions to help customers leverage the ease of use and ubiquity of the PDF format in their design and collaboration processes.
“The release of our new 3D PDF Plug-ins sets the standard for ease of use and functionality for architects, engineers, and designers enabling users to generate rich 3D PDF documents directly from within their CAD tool for securely sharing design information with anyone,” commented 3DA Systems Technology Specialist, K. Sihota. “PDF format offers unmatched flexibility for communication, collaboration, and dependable long term archiving of all design projects related to data, in the most commonly used format in the world. This in turn empowers companies to optimize a number of critical process workflows with reduced IT overhead.”
Now everyone associated with the project or team can interact with 3D design data without putting source intellectual property files at risk or requiring data recipients to download viewer applications. With up to 97% smaller files than the original 3D model, teams can easily conduct design reviews electronically whether they work within construction or directly with architects, designers, sub-contractors, engineers, or visualization specialists.
The new 3D PDF Plug-ins are available now for free trial or purchase in multiple languages through the 3DA Systems e-store or Autodesk Exchange App Store. More information is available at http://www.3dasystems.com/products/store/
