How to Review a 3D Model in PDF

Cross-team technical reviews of 3D model data using 3D PDF work-flows

If you work with 3D, it’s likely that you’re working within a larger team and perhaps directly with an external client.  Whether you’re sharing a 3D visualisation with a colleague, client,  or other external stakeholder, the review experience is a critical part of your workflow and key to a project […]

Visualization of Quantum Chromodynamics Case Study

Professor Derek Leinweber spends his days working at the extreme scale of just a few femtometers (fm), in a space large enough for just a few protons. A leading particle physicist, Derek is investigating Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of the strong interaction between quarks and gluons, the fundamental particles that make up composite hadrons such as the proton, neutron […]

Did You Know? PRC Supports a Range of Geometric Precision Options

Modern 3D PDF, documents based on the PRC (Product Representation Compact) standard include a range of possible geometric precision schemes. This guide offers help in selecting the most appropriate mode for your application.
PRC Encoding inside 3D PDF Files
First, the PRC 3D geometric encoding standard has two main categories of encoding, either pure or tessellated. In the “Pure” form, full fidelity geometric shapes are encoded preserving full […]

Did You Know? How to add Annotations and Dimension layers to PRC in 3D PDF

One of the special features of PRC (Product Representation Compact), as a modern best-practice method to embed 3D scenes in an interactive PDF View, is to add annotations and dimensional layers as special options.

Normally the full 3D model can be rotated, scaled and positioned in a 3D view for review, taking advantage of the PRC high compression features. Each view can optionally reveal other […]
