London, UK, June 17, 2014 – PDF3D have spent the past few months building in some key PMI features for developers in their V2.10 SDK released today. Until now annotation layers are often lost when PMI is published in visual formats outside of native CAD systems. This new release removes these issues for developers looking to integrate 3D PDF conversion functionality.
“As engineers are increasingly required to communicate their models in a universally accessible format, they are choosing to create reports in 3D PDF. Through close collaboration with our PLM clients in North America and Europe we have enabled critical GD&T with standardized PMI annotations, symbols and styles to help developers conform to the ASME Y14.5 standards”, explained Ian Curington of PDF3D.
New features in V2.10 PDF3D-SDK include advances in PMI details with the ability to add filled polygon annotation shapes and lead-line arrow-heads. The new version now also supports Face View, Frame Draw and Fixed Size modes. Oriented views can be captured and turned into buttons and thumbnails with associated visual hyperlinks and there is great flexibility in which Metasystem developers can use too as PDF3D-SDK is equipped with a rich library of classes and methods enabling semantic PMI implementations.
“As a leader in the field of 3D PDF conversion, we are committed to continuously evolving our PDF3D-SDK to give developers the most flexible, easy to use technology with every new update. We are developers ourselves and spend a great deal of time listening to what developers want. V2.10 is simply the outcome of the conversations with our partners and responding to the latest PMI requirements in manufacturing”, added Mr Curington.
