3D PDF Consortium Welcomes ITI as a Strategic Member
Milford, OH, May 22, 2012 – ITI TranscenData announced today that it has joined the 3D PDF Consortium as a Strategic Member. ITI TranscenData supports the translation, validation and report generation of 3D PDF within their unparalleled suite of CAD/CAM/CAE/PLM interoperability software products and related services.
Comprised of end-users, software vendors, systems integrators, developers, and software development toolkit providers, the 3D PDF Consortium organization seeks to encourage the continued development and adoption of 3D PDF as a truly open standard for visualization, collaboration, data exchange, and the long-term archiving and retrieval of engineering data.
“The 3D PDF Consortium proudly welcomes ITI TranscenData as a founding member” says David Opsahl, Executive Director of the 3D PDF Consortium. “As a leader in CAD Interoperability solutions, ITI TranscenData’s support of the 3D PDF Consortium further reinforces 3D PDF as a standard for data exchange.”
ITI TranscenData’s CADfix software offers the translation of 3D PDF files. CADIQ validates that 3D PDF files are equivalent to the native CAD models from which they are derived and produces side-by-side, 3D PDF reports for intuitive communication of engineering changes or other model comparison issues. Automated exchange of 3D PDF files is offered by DEXcenter, enabling customers to rapidly meet their 3D MBD initiatives.
“ITI TranscenData is committed to providing the most robust solutions in the CAD interoperability industry” stated Don Hemmelgarn, President of ITI TranscenData, “Our business supports the efforts of the 3D PDF Consortium, and we are pleased to be attending their first annual meeting at the 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress this week. The use of 3D PDF as a multi-purpose visualization standard continues to expand and ITI’s participation in the 3D PDF Consortium enables us to influence the standard and related software tools to meet our customer’s needs.”
