Aras Provides Embedded CAD to 3D PDF Converter in PLM
During its ACE 2013 user conference, Aras, an open source product lifecycle management (PLM) software provider, announced a computer-aided design (CAD) to 3D

3d cad  of all the major 3D CAD formats including Dassault CATIA and  SolidWorks, PTC Creo, Siemens NX ,  JT, and STEP . Thus, 3D content created by CAD can now be converted to standard PDF and then used in work instructions, technical publications, digital mock-up, and more. Various stakeholders can collaborate via 3D measurements, redlines, markups, and 3D comments in those PDF documents. They can hide, show, and isolate components, perform cross-sectioning, and store views as necessary. This nifty
