The Tetra4D brand evolved out of a collaboration between independent software developers and Tech Soft 3D, the exclusive Adobe partner responsible for delivering 3D technologies to Adobe OEM developers. The Tetra4D brand is now wholly owned by Tech Soft 3D, and Tetra4D products are offered alongside the company’s complementary HOOPS product lines.
Tetra4D Automate is a simple server solution to automatically generating data rich, interactive 3D PDF documents from PDM/PLM systems or internal storage networks.
Why this is important:
Organizations that create a high-volume of CAD models require a seamless and efficient solution to address the communication and collaboration challenges of manufacturing industries.
Tetra4D Automate scales 3D PDF usage by delivering documents that support key use cases with less IT effort or the need for a costly and complex enterprise-level solution.
Tetra4D Enrich is the only solution that allows anyone to create data rich, interactive 3D PDFs inside of Adobe® Acrobat® Pro without needing programming expertise.
Sharing 3D CAD models and product data with anyone in the extended enterprise, including non-CAD users, is a challenge for manufacturing industries. Depending on the usage, the required product information must be fit-to-purpose to enable efficient access and consumption. Tetra4D Enrich is a plug-in to Adobe Acrobat Pro that lets you connect and share critical CAD data with interactive, custom, reusable, 3D PDF templates.
Tetra4D Reviewer is a high performance native CAD viewer and mockup tool that allows you to easily interact with components and assemblies from over 20 major CAD formats.
There are multiple cases within manufacturing companies where accessing native CAD files, including precise geometry, is critical for people to execute tasks such as design review, product validation and assembly preparation.
Thanks to Tetra4D Reviewer, any user—even those without a CAD license or training—can measure precise geometry, merge, compare and modify CAD data, edit materials, textures, lighting, etc. Once review or modifications have been made, users can export to a neutral CAD format such as STEP or Parasolid, and the universally accessible 3D PDF.
