About PRC

PRC 3D Format
PRC (Product Representation Compact) is a 3D data structure and file format, one of two systems used in 3D PDF documents. Along side U3D, PRC is now the preferred and most feature-rich method to embed 3D interactive data and models into a PDF file. A PDF file containing PRC based 3D model can be viewed in using the Adobe Reader as well as […]

Converting COMSOL® Simulation Software Results to 3D PDF

Converting COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software output results into 3D PDF Reports using PV+
Once a suitable analysis result of the design vibration characteristics are performed, the numerical data and geometric mesh may be visualized. Using built-in COMSOL® menus, screen shots and movie files maybe created, for sharing with teams outside of simulation software users. However, to get real 3D interaction in a report […]
