Theorem Solutions claims the latest version of their Publish 3D-3D PDF solution improves the processes of sharing design data helping to improve communication and reduce any ambiguity based around product design data.

The software enables the publishing of 3D CAD data directly from within the design application, alongside any associated metadata, into an interactive 3D PDF document, says the company. It supports Model Based Definition (MBD) processes, and 3D annotations and dimensions (PMI), for downstream data re-use and enable the design author to pass information including PMI, geometry, assembly structure, metadata, and visualisation attributes directly to the manufacturing department.
