Tech Soft 3D Releases 3D PDF Reader for Mobile

Tech Soft 3D, one of PROSTEP AG's key technology partners, has released the "3D PDF Reader for Mobile", which makes almost all Adobe® Reader® functions available on iPads® and iPhones®.

The mobile app from Tech Soft 3D enables embedded U3D and PRC data to be displayed and even edited in a 3D PDF document on a mobile device for the first time. The 3D models can be rotated, moved and zoomed; PMI can be displayed and edited, animations can be executed and different views selected. It is also possible to measure and slice the 3D models.

"The 3D PDF Reader app is a truly impressive achievement by our key technology partner Tech Soft 3D," says Dr. Bernd Paetzold, CEO of PROSTEP AG. "This means that it is also possible to make comprehensive use of the files generated by PROSTEP's PDF Generator 3D on a mobile device for the first time. Having recently released our OpenDXM GlobalX app for iPhones, the app from Tech Soft 3D is a key component that supports the mobile offensive in our product development strategy."

The app is very easy to use: A 3D PDF document is opened on the mobile device in Adobe Reader Version 10.4 or higher and is displayed on the device in 2D. If the representation contains a U3D or PRC model and the 3D PDF Reader app has been installed, a tap on the model opens the 3D PDF Reader. Gestures allow almost all 3D relevant functions familiar from Adobe Reader to be used.

The 3D PDF Reader app can now be downloaded from the Apple AppStore® for just €4.49. Those who are quick off the mark can even get the app for nothing: the first 100 people to register on the PROSTEP PDF Generator 3D web site, will receive an iTunes gift certificate code from PROSTEP for free.
