Manual Export PDF (U3D) format

All parts from CADENAS catalogs can be displayed as 3D solids in the widespread Adobe PDF format. Parts ad assemblies can thus be displayed in 3D on all computers worldwide with a free standard license from Adobe Acrobat Reader (as of version 7.0.8). It is therefore possible to get a realistic view of the part prior to purchasing it.

The application range of Adobe Acrobat 3D are 3D processes of coordination, in other words better cooperation with technical documents through the integration of 3D data, shorter development times due to clearer 3D designs and the avoidance of construction errors. A further area of use is the technical documentation. The 3D design data can now be displayed on any desktop without the use of CAD applications and the preparation of the CAD data for marketing and technical documentation is easy as pie.
