Tetra4D Converter is the world's leading solution for converting native 3D CAD data into rich, interactive 3D PDF documents, including full support for precise solid geometry and Product Manufacturing Information (PMI). Only Tetra4D Automate Optional Writer and Adobe Acrobat together allow you to control whether recipients of your 3D PDFs can measure, section, comment on or export 3D data from both Acrobat and the free Adobe Reader. Because Adobe Reader is installed on 98% of desktops worldwide, anyone who needs to view your 3D data already has all the software they need.
Share CAD Data with Anyone
No need to own or learn to use expensive 3D CAD systems. With Tetra4D Automate Optional Writer you can accurately convert 3D data from the latest versions of CATIA, Pro/E, SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk Inventor, and all other major CAD applications to 3D PDF directly inside Adobe Acrobat Pro.
Always Viewable in Adobe Reader
Tetra4D Converter is built using the native technology found in all Acrobat products ensuring 3D content is displayed accurately every time it is opened with Adobe Reader.
Collaborate with Your Team
Given the ubiquity of Adobe Reader, 3D PDF files can be viewed, commented on and shared by virtually anyone. Creation of views, measurements and sectioning functions make collaboration simple and efficient.
Translate CAD Data
Export precise geometric 3D CAD data to STEP, IGES, JT, STL, Parasolid and ACIS from all major CAD formats for use in downstream applications.
Transition from MBD to MBE
Tetra4D Converter provides the tools you need to share Model Based Designs with suppliers, with full support for import of PMI data such as dimensions, tolerances, annotations and intelligent PMI view states.
Full Representation of CAD Data in a Compressed File
3D PDF's are up to 97% smaller than the original CAD model enabling easy electronic sharing.
Ensure your intellectual property is only opened by the intended recipient with Adobe Acrobat's password security. Control access to views, and user ability to mark up and export files.
