How 3D PDF Has Evolved to Support MBE


How 3D PDF Has Evolved to Support MBE by Phil Spreier of 3D PDF Consortium

Taking a closer look at how PDF has evolved to meet current & future needs of the model-based enterprise.

The Model Based Enterprise is built around the idea of providing the right data to the right people at the right time. The formats you choose can have a big impact on how usable that data is. This presentation will focus on how PDF has evolved to meet the current and future needs of the model-based enterprise.

Join us to learn how to:
· Manage comments, measurement and markup using XFDF
· Customize PDF with JavaScript
· Use XMP for ASME Y14.47 metadata

We will also be discussing new PDF standards development, including:
· Archiving 3D using PDF/A
· Integrating STEP AP242 with PDF
