Planning and Documenting the Assembly Process in 3D

3D Assembly - PROSTEP

Most machine and plant engineers still plan and document the assembly of their systems
using the object in question, in other words they assemble the system in its entirety or in parts
prior to delivery so that they can properly document the process. New photos and illustrations
are often created for the assembly instructions instead of using existing material from the engineering department. This approach is not only time consuming and labor intensive but also requires an unnecessarily large amount of space. The main problem, however, is that the technicians cannot start planning assembly and creating documentation until the system components have been completed, and by then time is usually short. As a result, changes made while the system is in operation are not systematically incorporated into the documentation, thus making maintenance more difficult. A PROSTEP solution for 3D assembly planning provides an alternative: documentation is converted into the 3D PDF format, thus ensuring that an up to-date version is always available.

Cut the Cost of CAD Conversion

CAD Conversion to 3D PDF - PROSTEP_US-Featured Image

Exporting and converting CAD data has always been a complex and expensive process… but is there an easier way to share data? These days, if you know where to look, CAD conversion can be both efficient and economical. Of the available conversion software on the market today, PROSTEP’s conversion solutions are the least expensive and most advantageous. PROSTEP software converts CAD data from any authoring system (AutoCAD, Creo Parametric, CATIA, Solidworks, etc.) into a lightweight, shareable 3D PDF file.

Engineering Change Notice with 3D PDF

ECN - 3D PDF - PROSTEP_US-Featured Image

The engineering change notice communicates what approved changes need to be made to a product. The ECN contains a detailed description of the changes and can be a manual or automated process depending on your company’s workflow. Unfortunately, regardless of the process method, the ECN can be cumbersome and often involves laborious steps.
