Tech Soft 3D announced it has signed an agreement with Adobe Systems Incorporated to transition development and support of Adobe’s 3D SDK and related technologies, employees, and resources to Tech Soft 3D. Consisting of a 3D CAD translation suite and PDF publishing SDK, the technology allows OEM development teams to create applications that access data from over 25 popular 3D file formats, and publish rich 3D PDF files in the industry-standard PRC and U3D formats. Adobe will continue to support viewing of and interaction with 3D data within its applicable products, including the free Adobe® Reader® software. Tech Soft 3D will continue to make updated CAD translators available to end users as plug-ins to applicable Adobe® software for reading and outputting 3D PDF.
Tech Soft 3D will maintain the existing development center in Lyon, France, which will continue to aggressively update, enhance, and support the technology. For easier application integration, Tech Soft 3D plans to immediately repackage the 3D SDK and PRC publisher into pure library form.
Tech Soft 3D has been an Adobe reseller to the engineering software community for the Adobe PDF Library SDK since 2005. In 2008, Tech Soft 3D was named a distributor of the Acrobat 3D SDK for OEM integration of Acrobat software’s 3D capabilities into CAD/CAM/CAE software.
