Tetra4D SP1 Increases Performance for Large Model 3D PDF Creation and STEP AP242 Export

Tech Soft 3D today announced major enhancements to Tetra 4D Converter, a solution for converting 3D CAD to 3D PDFs, and Tetra4D Enrich, a new application that enables anyone to create rich, interactive 3D PDF documents quickly and easily directly inside of Adobe Acrobat [Professional]. Together, Tetra4D Converter and Tetra4D Enrich support multiple workflows, allowing users to package precise solid geometry and all necessary PMI into a lightweight, sharable format. 

"The more we work with customers on solving key business problems around process and workflow, the more we understand how we need to continue enhancing our 3D PDF products to address those critical issues," said Gavin Bridgeman, vice president of products at Tech Soft 3D. "I am extremely proud of our team for creating a solution that truly is the most robust, most complete, the easiest to use and has helped so many of our customers save immeasurable amounts of time, and hundreds of thousands of dollars." 

The enhancements to Tetra4D Converter include format updates for CATIA and Autodesk Inventor, as well as adding STEP AP242 export, a powerful standard for 3D model-based engineering and the globally declared backbone format for the aerospace, defense and automotive industries. Providing STEP AP242 reading and new export capabilities means that now any user of Tetra4D solutions can generate technical data packages with an attached STEP file, to share product information downstream in manufacturing workflows. Tetra4D Converter also features enhancements that will provide a better user experience overall.
