3DPDF - Transforming Visual Communication
The digital world is everywhere. Our buildings, our plants and factories, our means of transportation, of defence – all start as things that come to life first as a digital definition. Increasingly, that means being created in a three dimensional form. Designing things in 3D allows us to make things better, faster, and cheaper, but it doesn’t end with design. The challenge now is how to take advantage of that 3D information to make anything and everything associated with imagining, designing, realizing, maintaining, and using these things.
It has been said that over 85% of all the information available on the Internet exists it the form of PDF documents, and for good reason. The ability to consume a PDF file is present on over 95% of all Internet connected devices worldwide. PDF defines ubiquity, and is the original “app” – focused in purpose, and easy to use. Now, PDF has the ability to include 3D data from most, soon to be all, applications that create these rich 3D definitions of things, and makes consuming that information as accessible as Adobe Reader or similar applications. It is literally transforming the way we communicate, in dramatic fashion.
The 3DPDF Consortium was created to foster the community of those organizations who rely on the effective communication of 3D information, and if your company is one of them, let us tell you more about what we are doing. We invite you to join us.
Want to know more? Here is an introduction to the Consortium that talks about what 3DPDF is, how it works, what its used for, who is using it, and how the Consortium is helping to push adoption of this unqiue platform.
