Elysium is committed to openness and established standards for the representation of 3D data.
We will continue to support and improve 3D interoperability including workflows with 3D PDF and HTML.
3D PDF & HTML
― Accelerating 3D Communication
Today’s engineering processes are increasingly ‘model-based,’ emphasizing the need to establish reliable and seamless communication throughout the entire process.
3D PDF and HTML play crucial roles in model-based processes. These 3D formats can be used to quickly and accurately communicate a complete product specification. This can enhance collaboration, efficiency, and overall business performance.
With Elysium 3DxSuite, you can leverage the power of 3D PDF and HTML to create customized Technical Data Packages (TDPs). These TDPs can contain all the data necessary to communicate within your organization or with your supply chain, including 3D data, product structure, PMI, metadata, specifications and more
Why 3D PDF / Why HTML
The PDF file format is an ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standard format capable of containing and visualizing 3D data (ISO 32000). It serves the needs at various stages in the product life cycle. The benefits of 3D PDF are:
- PDF is the most used data format for sharing and distributing documents
- 3D PDF is suitable for long term archiving (LOTAR) and MIL-STD-31000
- Approval Tools Including Comments, Stamps and Digital Signatures
- Advanced Security including Encryption, Password Protection, and Access Control
HTML is a standard under the W3C umbrella that enables viewing 3D data in the browser. The benefits of HTML are :
- Capable of handling large models with high performance
- Enables responsive design/layout
- Automatically adjusted with the window size
- Manually adjustable to optimize screen space usage
- Has portability “built-in”
- Easy to open on mobile devices
Elysium is a member of the PDF Association and has access to the latest technical resources, industry standards, and best practices related to PDF technologies. Elysium is the only MBD software developer to participate in the development of ISO standards for PDF technology, enabling us to deliver innovative, compliant, and efficient solutions.
