Product Description

Pages3D Professional 2012Pages3D Professional 2012 includes all the features of Pages3D Standard plus update capabilities, custom parts lists, multiple 3D models per project, and complex project management tools. Pages3D Professional 2012 is an easy-to-use page design product that leverages existing 3D models to create multiple-page documents. The software is as easy to install and use as standard Microsoft Office products. Right out of the box, Pages3D Professional 2012 includes a powerful set of 3D tools for working with 3D models, 2D drawings, parts lists, and formatted text allowing anyone to author complete printed, web, or interactive documents in minutes!
Manufacturing instructions, user guides, illustrated parts lists, service procedures, marketing brochures and other product documents are necessary to get your products to market. As more products are designed with 3D design software, such as SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER or Inventor, it becomes critical to reuse these highly informative 3D models for the creation of documents and communications.
The Industry Problem
Today, most companies go through a lengthy process that requires the author to manually capture images, manually create bill-of-materials, manually add callouts and then insert the images and tables into a word processing program. When updates are required the entire process is repeated. This multi-step, multi-program approach significantly limits documentation quality, effectiveness, ease-of creation, maintainability and time-to-market.
The Pages3D Professional 2012 solution
With Pages3D Professional 2012, customers report an immediate time savings of 80% or more for document creation when compared to common methods in practice today. In addition, Pages3D allows users to update documents seamlessly when 3D CAD designs change, saving days of rework.
