PROSTEP PDF Generator 3D 2.0 offers a variety of new features

Darmstadt, July 2011– Communicate, comment and control – the new version 2.0 of the server solution PROSTEP PDF Generator 3D provides even more comprehensive functions for utilizing and making engineering data available on the basis of PDF within the borders of a single company and in collaborative scenarios involving external partners. Thanks to the even deeper integration of the PLM connectors, it is now much easier to read out BOMs, other PDM information and related documents automatically and incorporate them in 3D PDF documents. With the new version, PROSTEP AG now also offers its customers the optional modules PDF Generator 3D Reader Extensions and PDF Generator 3D Rights Management, which can be used during generation of the 3D PDFs to define exactly what the recipient may and may not do with the documents.

Five months have passed since PROSTEP PDF Generator 3D was successfully launched onto the market, and it has been extremely well received by customers. In the meantime, the company, which is headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, and specializes in business management services and engineering solutions, has been working hard on the further development of the server solution. In addition to even deeper integration of PLM connectors, PROSTEP PDF Generator 3D also offers more CAD translators that allow native data from the CAD systems NX 7.5, Solid Edge ST3, SolidWorks2010 and 2011 as well as Inventor 2011 and 2012 to be converted and published in the 3D PDF format at the push of a button. One key advantage of the format is that the 3D PDF documents can be visualized with the normal Adobe Reader.

Integration of the PROSTEP PDF Generator 3D Reader Extensions Module in the solution also offers the option of activating a large number of additional functions for using the generated 3D PDF documents in Adobe Reader. The recipient can then, for example, add comments or fill in certain fields on a form. “These additional functions make PDF Generator 3D a powerful tool for all business processes where 3D data not only needs to be visualized but where information also needs to be added such as in the case of requests for quotations“, explained Peter Pfalzgraf, head of the product center for the 3D PDF portfolio at PROSTEP AG.

With the help of the PDF Generator 3D Rights Management Module, the information contained in the 3D PDF documents can also be effectively protected against access by unauthorized persons. The recipient must identify himself or herself at a special server in order to be able to open and read the 3D PDF documents. The special charm of the solution is that access rights can be restricted to a specific period of time and if necessary can be revoked when, for example, a document is no longer valid.

PROSTEP PDF Generator 3D Version 2.0 and the additional modules are available immediately. PROSTEP believes that the new version will allow an even greater level of systematic use of the 3D PDF technology for making 3D data available to other departments and in cross-enterprise collaboration scenarios.
