STEP to 3D PDF

What is a STEP file?
STEP was developed to solve the age-old problem of sharing 3D model file data between different CAD systems.  STEP, which stands for Standard for the Exchange of Product Data, is essentially an exchange format, much like PDF, that can be recognized by various programs, thereby making it easier to send data to other CAD users.

STEP is […]

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 […]
