Our latest Publish 3D – 3D PDF suite of products now offer greater levels of Intellectual Property (IP) protection  to users publishing 3D CAD data directly to a PDF file from within their design and visualization applications. PDF files containing interactive 3D data created using our Publish 3D provide a higher level of Intellectually Property (IP) security than native CAD files by allowing the documents to be password protected. Native CAD files cannot be password protected, causing IP vulnerabilities when shared or accessed. Using 3D PDF, the CAD data can be translated into a tessellated format, with content such as features, history and constraints being removed, so that the 3D representation can be viewed and manipulated, but the native CAD data cannot be accessed or reproduced from the PDF alone. This added functionality gives greater confidence when sharing sensitive information with partners and suppliers. Read More
