How to Prevent Leakage When Sharing Prototype Designs, Research and Data

Engineers and scientists working on the latest developments rely on the secure transfer of critical information.   The work that goes into 3D design, research and analysis is extensive – and expensive – and a leakage of that data can be detrimental.

What is the best way to share confidential 3D data?

It turns out that it’s not that difficult to increase the […]

The Perfect CFD and 3D PDF Partnership in Automotive

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is increasingly big news in the automotive industry and F1, where it is used by engineers to conduct design simulations and solve problems in a virtual environment, which is much faster, easier and more cost effective than physical testing.

CFD software has come a long way since the 1980s when it was first introduced to collect fluid […]

What is a PRC File?

Put simply, if you want to create a 3D PDF in Adobe’s Acrobat® X or XI Pro, you’ll need a PRC file (or U3D file) to do it. Acrobat can load and embed a PRC file into a PDF page. Once embedded, the 3D PDF can be viewed using the free Adobe Reader. The PRC file contains the actual 3D geometry.
So what is a PRC file?
