Inventor users are now able to export their 3D models as customised PDF files. The exported PDF-files are not only smaller in size, but also very secure since the PDF’s can’t be modified. The SimLab 3D PDF Exporter for Inventor allows you to view your exported model on any machine that has Acrobat Reader installed.
The plugin is supported on Inventor 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 (32, and 64bit).
Export Using Customised Templates
A Template Designer has been added to the 3D PDF Exporter for Inventor. This enables the user to design custom templates that are visually appealing to use when exporting their 3D Inventor files. The template designer also includes sample templates that can easily be customised with but a few clicks.
Embed 3D PDF files into HTML
A number of templates are available that make it possible to generate an HTML file containing the embedded 3D PDF. Simply click the “Embed PDF” button in the SimLab 3D PDF Exporter ribbon and select the PDF document you wish to embed and the HTML template you prefer. Click “Export” and share you Inventor 3D PDF files online.
Merge PDF Files
A new tool for SimLab 3D PDF for Inventor allows the user to merge multiple PDF files. Easily add a PDF version of your company’s custom front page to the exported 3D Model PDF file for a professional, personalised presentation. Once clicked, the Merge PDF button will open a dialog box where the user can select the .pdf files to merge and reorder the pages as desired.
