HOOPS Publish 2016 Enables Intelligent 3D PDF Creation


Enhancement to Semantics PMI, ability to export view carrousel and Bill of materials easily make the 3D PDF technology toolkit more advanced than ever

Bend, OR, USA – February 24, 2016 – Tech Soft 3D today announced the release of HOOPS Publish 2016, with multiple enhancements designed to make the creation of intelligent 3D PDFs from your software application easier than ever.

“The manufacturing and construction industries increasingly need to share 3D data directly linked to other critical business data, both graphical and non-graphical, in a single, contextualized package,” says Eric Vinchon, Product Manager, HOOPS Publish. “The enhancements made to HOOPS Publish 2016 will enable developers to create sophisticated 3D PDF files that function more like apps rather than just viewing 3D data.”

Advanced features include:

  • - Ability to link PMI with Geometrcial data, including edge
  • - Ability to export view carousels
  • - Ability to export exact B-Rep measurements
The ability to export Bill of Materials (BOM) and create a carousel of views that can both be linked with your 3D Data makes the 3D PDF publishing toolkit more advanced than ever.  The native 3D PDF publishing technology in HOOPS Publish is also powering a new end-user focused product (also distributed by Tech Soft 3D) called Tetra 4D Enrich.  Now, everyone from developers to consumers can create the powerful 3D PDF documents they need to communicate with stakeholders across an entire project, even non-CAD users.
