Preference 3D PDF Samples for Fenestration Manufacturing

The sample 3D PDFs show models developed in PrefSuite, an ERP software system from Preference in Valencia Spain. The samples show windows, doors and curtain walls in 3D PDF document format for use in the fenestration industry supply chain. PrefSuite has integrated PDF3D-SDK methods to produce custom view points, dimensional annotations (GD&T, PMI), section icons and model cut-aways. Glass sections are transparent and construction […]

Orthodontic Lab Fully Integrates 3D PDF to Improve Communications and Dental Patient Privacy

London, UK, 14th September 2016 – Dobson Ortho Laboratory, based in Gainesville, Georgia USA, has enhanced communications with orthodontists and improved patient data security by converting 3D STL orthodontic treatment plans  into 3D PDFs. By representing multiple STL files within a 3D context directly from dental scans in a compressed and secure PDF, the lab’s communication with orthodontists has been […]

Gold & Silver Mining Optimized with 3D PDF

INFA, the engineering, construction and manufacturing company that provides custom, on-site mineral processing at a large Gold and Silver mine in the Santa Cruz region of Argentina, explains how the engineering team uses 3D PDF to improve communications with clients when sharing 3D CAD designs for custom Gold & Silver processing plants.

“We mostly send 3D PDF documents to our customers […]

dGB’s OpendTect Pro Allows Users to Share Seismic Images without Giving Away Data

The seismic survey data that is gathered via geophysics exploration is extremely valuable and often very large, which is why dGB Earth Sciences sought a solution that would both protect intellectual property and compress the file size during the process of sharing information.

dGB Earth Sciences B.V., a privately owned company based in Netherlands, USA and India, has supplied OpendTect, the […]

VOXLER Visualization of Iridium Geobody

Historic Extraterrestrial Cause for Extinction at KT-Boundary due to Iridium Evidence
The dense metallic element Iridium is found in meteorites with much higher abundance than on Earth. This is the basis for the theory that the unusually high abundance of iridium in the clay layer at the geologic sedimentary Cretaceous-Tertiary (KT-Boundary) layer may have been caused by a massive meteorite impact, […]

DEEPINTERFACE Architectural Design Interactive Report Integration

The collection of architectural models on the sample gallery from DEEPINTERFACE show very highly polished 3D development and integration using advanced 3D techniques using PDF3D technology for producing highly compressed 3D PDF reports. Supporting commercial clients for architecture, design, marketing and planning, the Vienna based practice is leading the way for both 3D PDF and interactive “Smart3D” web model presentations sensitive to the specific […]

C4W Dental Virtual Simulation in 3D PDF Report

This model is a demonstration example of C4W 3D development and integration using advanced 3D techniques and CAD interfaces. By using the PDF3D-SDK Development Toolkit core generation engine for producing highly compressed 3D PDF reports, C4W are able to provide complete solutions to Dental systems suppliers.

The 3D PDF reporting technology is included with DIGILEA’s DIGISTELL, 3D Dental CAD software for removable partial frameworks, the fruit of a close collaboration […]
