Excellent Data Compression
ReportGen can convert complex models and landscapes into smaller, more manageable file sizes for easier storage and sharing. With excellent compression technology for complex data, ReportGen will create sharp, full colour 3D images without sacrificing image quality or critical information.

Feature Rich
Models, parts, maps, landscapes and concepts can be easily brought to life in ReportGen with movie clips and interactive views. Merge scenes, animate sequences and add video to your presentation with playback controls and rich media. Add assembly views, tables, images and captions to multi page PDFs and insert keywords for quick search functionality too. Read more about the features.

Easy To Use
ReportGen has been designed to be a pleasure to use. Whether you’re converting from popular CAD tools or DWG 3D, DWF 3D and DXF modeling, simply drag and drop the files for instant conversion. No other software is necessary. Read more about how others use ReportGen.

On Windows, the software package is supplied as a vendor signed .MSI installer file. An email containing a transient timed validated download link from our secure cloud storage "depot" will be sent.

After downloading, save this MSI on your local file system. Double-click or run this installer. Elevated administrative rights will be requested during the install process, as the installer creates registry settings and new entries into the desktop start menus. The application files normally are placed within the "Program Files" area which also require administrative rights.

After installing, first run the PDF3D License utility. Use this to request a license. Administrator privileges' are not required to request or activate a license. If firewalls or network policies block the license request communication to the pdf3d.com website, please push "show codes" and send these by any available means of communication.


To permanently remove the software application, use the Windows Add/Remove menu in the control panel. Elevated administrative rights will be requested during the uninstall process, as the installer removes program files, removes registry settings and removes entries into the desktop start menus.

Any license keys are NOT removed, so if the software is re-installed or upgraded the same keys should be functional.
