DWG to 3D PDF Conversion Now Available for AutoCAD 2014 From PDF3D
London, UK, March 19, 2014 –
PDF3D, the developers known throughout the engineering and manufacturing environments for their highly intuitive 3D PDF tools, today announced their support for AutoCAD’s latest 2014 software version.
PDF3D’s latest update of their popular ReportGen tool goes beyond other AutoCAD plugins with a new level of 3D PDF creation for 3D CAD users. Working in parallel with Autodesk’s aim of providing highly sophisticated 3D design tools, PDF3D’s ReportGen allows AutoCAD users to easily convert DWG files to rich, fully interactive, beautifully animated 3D PDFs at the touch of a button.
“As unaffiliated, independent developers, we are great fans of Autodesk and admire what the company has done with their 2014 version. The brand’s values fit perfectly with those at PDF3D and so evolving ReportGen to work seamlessly with AutoCAD 2014 felt like a natural evolution of our tool. It’s good to be able to add value to such a popular design authoring product,” explained Ian Curington of PDF3D.
“Just as Autodesk has done, we have focused on usability, functionality and design quality with PDF3D ReportGen. As a result, our tool can be easily integrated with AutoCAD to create highly compressed 3D PDFs regardless of how large or complex the DWG files are, without losing design fidelity in the process”, said Ian.
One of the outstanding features of PDF3D ReportGen is its ability to automatically scan assemblies and show 3D part dimensions as embedded PDF markup information (PMI). As well as the widely used DWG format, DWF and ZGL drawing formats extend the reach of reporting for AutoCAD users. Sophisticated 3D CAD simplification filtering provides control over final report size. The tool enables engineers and designers to instantly, and automatically convert multiple files into accurate, sharp and even animated 3D PDFs with full text annotations and specifications into PDF drawing layout templates that can then be shared with anyone.
“The support we are offering to AutoCAD 2014 users is part of our company’s continuing aim to make life easier for those working with highly technical, complex data. Fast, secure and easy communication of ideas, designs and information is now a necessity for those working in engineering, manufacturing and research, which is exactly what our developers at PDF3D are driven to deliver.”
