PDF3D Integrates XSL-FO for 3D Technical Report Generation

The PDF3D® system provides XSL-FO report generation leveraging the leading ECRION document generation engine.

October 22, 2012 - The PDF3D® publishing platform completes the circle to integrate full interactive 3D models into the XSL-FO production document creation process. Integrating ECRION ( http://www.ecrion.com) XF Designer, XF Rendering Server and XSL-FO solutions enables direct integration for embedding interactive 3D views inside managed formatted PDF documents using the PDF3D ( http://www.pdf3d.com) publishing platform. Document work-flows can now include seamless full-function 3D content with interactive controls (Spin, Pan & Zoom) plus complete part hierarchy control and advanced features auto generated animation, automatic PMI, color point clouds, custom light sources, measurement probe, floating 3D labels, view dependent part visibility of complex models.

The ability to inject rich 3D content windows exactly where needed in the PDF document, complete with functional capability like camera flight path animation will enhance the value of the information communicated which will accelerate collaboration. Improved interaction supports communicating complex data with document contextual information and adds considerable value to manufacturing, engineering, scientific or medical reporting work-flows. Precise format control is often critically important to brand, corporate image and customer perception.

XSL-FO (XML Style Sheet Document Formatting Objects) is a mature standard used in today's advanced document generation systems as an intermediate step from Word DOCX, XHTML, and DocBook. XSLT transformations or ECRION’s XF Designer are used to transform document content into portable XSL-FO. Once generated, ECRION's leading XF Rendering Server XSL-FO engine converts the XSL-FO source document material into readable PDF format. This level of abstraction enables automatic generation of table of contents, linked references, index, hyphenation, or multi-column layout, page margins, and chapter headings. In particular, layout and placement of 3D Views can be managed at the source document level, specified as XSL-FO tags. The layout and management of 3D Views stays consistent with other document content. The PDF3D XSL-FO solution, with enterprise PDF3D XML Server, maximizes abstraction levels of XML, while inserting full rich medial content for interactive 3D PDF reports.

Once the 3D PDF is created, the complementary PDF3D in PowerPoint® plugin assists sharing results within a single unified presentation. The PDF document is accessible using Acrobat® or the free Adobe Reader®.
