3D PDF Consortium Welcomes Datakit

Leading Data Translation Company Joins Industry Group

Portland, OR, USA – May 6, 2015 -- The 3D PDF Consortium is proud to announce its latest independent software developer member.

Datakit, a leading provider of data translation and exchange solutions for the MCAD/MCAM market that provide support of 3D PDF output for input formats supported by its CROSSManager and CROSSCAD/Plg product lines. These products are currently shipping and available to software developers who want to integrate support for 3D PDF output from a variety of MCAD formats without the need to have a license of the authoring application present.

“Datakit’s support of the work of the Consortium is greatly appreciated, and is a testament to the value they say in supporting our work of moving the relevant ISO standards forward”, says Phil Spreier, the 3DPDF Consortium technical director. “They also support the work of the 3DPDF-IF, the implementors forum where developers who are committed to advancing 3DPDF worth with members of the industrial user community to inform the standards development process and the user community on best practices for implementation.

“We believe that 3DPDF has gained tremendous momentum in the marketplace, especially with regards to model based enterprise (MBE) initiatives that are becoming increasingly comment in industrial companies of all sizes” says Francis Cadin, Datakit CEO. “We believe strongly that without an organization like the Consortium, we would not see that level of adoption in our customer base and the market at large”.

Membership in the Consortium now stands at nineteen (19) software developers and industrial end user companies. More announcements are forthcoming as press approvals are granted by the joining members.
