3DA Systems’ 3D PDF Converter for Revit built with Tech Soft 3D’s HOOPS Publish
New product supports lightweight collaboration of Autodesk® REVIT® files through data-rich 3D PDF generation.
Victoria, BC, Canada and Berkeley, CA, USA - July 25, 2012 - 3DA Systems Inc., developer of smart 3D functions for visualization, communication and project coordination, and Tech Soft 3D, Inc., leading provider of development tools to the engineering software industry, announce the launch of the 3D PDF Converter for Revit®, developed by 3DA Systems and powered by Tech Soft 3D’s HOOPS® Publish. 3DA Systems also licenses Tech Soft 3D’s Acrobat® Pro Bundle program, which allows it to combine the 3D PDF Converter for Revit with a seat of Adobe Acrobat® X Pro, creating a convenient, all-in-one package for customers.
The 3D PDF Converter for Revit connects the extensive Building Information Modeling (BIM) community for the first time with a Revit plug-in that supports data sharing using 3D PDF based on the PRC file format. HOOPS Publish provides the same native technology used by Adobe to create and consume 3D PDF files, ensuring that data generated from the 3D PDF Converter for Revit has guaranteed compatibility to Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader. The result is accurate, data-rich 3D models that are up to 97% smaller than the original Revit file.
“We recognized that there was an urgent need for Revit users to join the broader movement of 3D data sharing through 3D PDF,” says Michael Schell, President of 3DA Systems. “The 3D PDF Converter for Revit uses HOOPS Publish because it is the only tool that ensures Revit files map precisely to PRC – which is necessary for our customers to display their valuable data with the highest integrity and portability.”
“The 3D PDF Converter for Revit is an exciting new application that fills a real need in the BIM market as the industry is increasingly looking toward 3D PDF as the preferred method to view and share design and construction data,” says Gavin Bridgeman, VP of SDK Products, Tech Soft 3D.
