With the release of PDF3D Version 2.25, improvements have been made to improve the security of the software and provide some additional functionality to users of ReportGen.
Leading 3D PDF tool provider PDF3D, an Apryse company, releases the V2.25 update demonstrating continued support for 3D technical publishing. The release includes the addition of new command line utilities, preserved metadata for DWG (and other Teigha formats) and new builds for CentOS Stream 9. PDF3DReportGen is now available on a range of Linux platforms.
This version also delivers fixes for over 13 security vulnerabilities. Customers using ParaView will also benefit from a new build against the updated code base.
To take advantage of these improvements, particularly security updates, we’d encourage all customers on active maintenance to upgrade as soon as possible, please contact technical support if you require assistance.
Metadata Preservation – Teigha Interface
When converting files with the Teigha interface, metadata may now be preserved. In CAD, metadata is used to provide additional context and information about CAD files generated.
This may include information such as the original Authors, File Creation time, Title, Subject and additional keyboards.
If information is existent in Teigha files, PDF3D will export this to 3D PDFs. To view metadata, simply click on your converted model in the Model Tree in Adobe Reader:
