3D technical illustrations enable individuals to absorb complex information incredibly quickly. To develop 3D content at scale and efficiently, technical illustrators must have the resources to:
The problem is, not all technical illustration software provide these capabilities.
Associative Links: Create technical illustrations and animations from SolidWorks, CATIA, JT, and other CAD files.
Sequencing Tools: Generate interactive 3D animations that guide service technicians and operators through complex procedures.
Change Management: Automatically apply product engineering, design, or development changes to published content.
Content Reuse: Reference a central repository of 3D content to build parts catalogs, manuals, and other publications.
Annotations: Add callouts, text notes and symbols to provide additional context behind illustrations.
Device Agnostic: Ensure your content is accessible through print, mobile, desktop, and augmented reality.
Explore the content below for an in-depth look at technical illustration software features, as well as insight as to how the technology can benefit your aftermarket business.
Discover how you can create technical illustrations that increase end-user comprehension and field service productivity.
This on-demand webinar outlines what service organizations can do to develop AR-ready service content for customers and technicians
This webinar assesses the three capabilities companies need in order to create, manage, and deliver 3D content.
Research suggests that interactive, 3D animations can help individuals absorb and retain complex information more efficiently.
Table-top AR refers to any 3D content that represents a product in its entirety. Product-overlay AR is overlaid onto a physical object.
Inaccurate service information could hamper your efforts to roll out an augmented reality strategy.
Prepare your technical illustrators for the age of mixed reality.
