Tech Soft 3D Releases HOOPS Publish 2015

Newest version of native 3D PDF publishing toolkit empowers developers to engineer the most advanced 3D PDFs yet.

October 16, 2014 – Bend, OR, USA – Tech Soft 3D today announces the release of HOOPS Publish 2015, enriched with powerful options for adding intelligent 3D PDF publishing to any application. Advanced features include the ability to create interactive document objects that drive 3D behaviors, and tools for designing smart templates that link relevant information with visuals. HOOPS Publish can create 3D PDFs that store and share all aspects of a model in support of the modern MBE (model-based enterprise) approach to engineering. Additionally, it is the only solution on the market that generates rich, highly-compressed 3D PDFs using the native PRC file format, guaranteeing geometric accuracy and 100% compatibility with Adobe products.

“The manufacturing and construction industries increasingly needs to share 3D data directly linked to other intelligence in a single, contextualized package,” says Gavin Bridgeman, Tech Soft 3D VP of Products. “With HOOPS Publish 2015, developers can create templates that perfectly address a number of specific workflows for using 3D data downstream.” 

Among the many improvements to HOOPS Publish 2015: 

  • 3D-focused interactive objects: Easily incorporate View Carousels, Bills of Materials and more, using the ability to create interactive PDF objects that drive behaviors within the 3D scene.  
  • Advanced PDF objects via API: Easily build advanced list boxes, buttons and hot-spots in your PDF document directly via the HOOPS Publish APIs.  
  • Visual Response Improvements: Based on customer feedback, our visual response capabilities now more accurately reflect the intent outlined in the ASME Y14.41 standard for creating and interacting with PMI data.

Says Anark CEO, Stephen Collins, "HOOPS Publish continues to provide the advanced functionality needed to create dynamic, intelligent 3D PDFs that keep us at the forefront of the Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) revolution, where collaboration and rich data reuse is critical.”
