Tech Soft 3D Launches Tetra4D Enrich to Quickly and Easily Create Interactive 3D PDFs

Tetra 4D Enrich is changing that.

Tetra 4D Enrich is the first and only solution that allows anyone to create data rich, interactive 3D PDFs inside of Adobe Acrobat and without the need for development skills. Tetra 4D Enrich consolidates all required product information in one document (CAD, metadata, external data like ERP or PLM attributes) to make it interactive. Users are able to create their own template, as well as utilize existing templates that are highly customizable. Once one of these templates are created they can be reused to create compelling documents such as work instructions, part catalogs, maintenance or repair documents and technical data packages.

The interactive 3D PDF created with Tetra4D Enrich functions more like an “app” that has all the data needed to support a workflow and allows the user to consume the data using the ubiquitous Acrobat Reader. The Tetra4D Enrich interactive 3D PDF “app” also enables the user and other stakeholders to review multiple steps in a process in one document, as opposed to reviewing dozens or hundreds of static individual pages of each item or step in a process. Data can also be captured in any business process, and forwarded for further processing by other applications.

Tetra4D Enrich works with Tetra4D Converter to convert CAD data from over two dozen formats into 3D PDF files. Tetra4D Converter is used by more than 10,000 customers including manufacturing leaders such as Boeing, Proctor and Gamble, Honeywell, B/E Aerospace, Zodiac Aerospace, and Goodyear Aerospace (now United Technologies).

“Today’s engineering documentation requires specialized interpretation, leading to errors that cost real money,” said Chad Jackson, analyst at Lifecycle Insights. “Confusion over CAD applications and formats and ensuring project stakeholders even have the right version of the engineering deliverable is an issue that persists. Being able to quickly and easily create 3D documentation that contain all the data necessary for anyone, even non-CAD users, to provide feedback and make informed decisions will provide a tremendous savings in time and money, and enable stakeholders to focus on the most important aspects of a task.”

Tetra 4D Enrich will be available in Q1 2016. For more information please visit
