Ship classification using 3D PDF technology from PROSTEP

Ship classification (class approval) normally involves the exchange of numerous large-format drawings between a shipyard and a classification society. In addition to this, Meyer Werft in Papenburg will for the first time also be providing the classification company DNV GL with 3D models of a cruise ship. The digital class approval process is based on PROSTEP’s 3D PDF technology.

Smart CAD Models for Smart Products

PROSTEP SmartCAD Models

Developing smart products doesn’t just require smart development tools, it also needs smart users who are capable of exploiting the intelligence offered by these tools and thus able to create smart product models. Otherwise, the digital twin will remain some kind of digital Frankenstein. Companies therefore need to sharpen their focus on design methodology.

3D PDF Technical Data Package (TDP)

PROSTEP Technical Data Package

Adobe and PROSTEP have expanded their long-standing cooperation in the field of 3D PDF technology in order to provide companies with optimum support when it comes to establishing drawingless processes in accordance with the VDA guideline 4953-2 or MIL-STD-31000. Under the new agreement PROSTEP is now also able to offer customers the option of creating PDF-based technical data packages (TDP) containing any kind of 3D representations. The licensed functionality for flattening 3D models and generating PDF/A-3-compliant containers are part of a separate TDP module that expands PROSTEP’s PDF Generator 3D. The new module is now available.

Spare Parts Catalog from a 3D PDF Container

Spare Parts Catalog

PROSTEP’s 3D PDF technology supports the digitalization of a wide range of business processes. For example, Atotech Deutschland uses our 3D PDF-based service content publishing solution to generate electronic spare parts catalogs for its specialist electroplating systems. This has dramatically reduced the time required to produce the documentation compared to the previously used catalog creation system.
