QuadriSpace announces 2014 SP1 with enhanced Technical Illustration Tools

Service Pack 1 includes new illustration tools and support for Solid Edge ST8.

Allen, Texas – May 28, 2014 – Today, QuadriSpace™ announced the immediate availability of Pages3D™ 2014 SP1, Publisher3D™ 2014 SP1 and Document3D™ Suite 2014 SP1.

QuadriSpace products enable companies to rapidly author compelling technical documents, create and publish highly informative technical illustrations and distribute 3D content for collaboration in the cloud.

The new service pack includes new features and stock content that provides users with more options when creating custom technical illustrations. For a video demonstration of the new features in SP1, visit http://www.quadrispace.com/videos/128530333.

  • The new “Smart Grid” automatically aligns the markup grid based on a part’s geometry. This makes it easy to draw technical illustration symbols onto a 2D plane in 3D space to indicate rotations or movements related to a part. This is especially useful with regular-shaped parts with such as screws, bolts, O-rings, washers and pipes.
  • The new “Face-Aligned Grid” aligns the markup grid to a selected face. Allowing the user to arbitrarily align for 3D symbol drawing.
  • A new drawing system enables a single mouse click and drag to set initial position, size and rotation of the drawn symbol.
  • New convenience tools for centering symbols on parts or on clicked 3D points.
  • A new symbols pack includes hands, tools, rotational arrows, linear arrows and more. The new raster symbols are included as 32-bit images with transparency providing more versatility of use.
  • A new ability to select a color for raster-based symbols making it easy to reuse stock gray scale images and colorize them for various projects and styles.
  • Support for transparent images on the document page.

In addition, the 2014 SP1 release adds support for the recently announced Solid Edge® ST8. Consistent with previous versions of the software, SolidWorks®, Autodesk® Inventor, Creo®, Pro/E®, Rhino®, SketchUp®, DWF™, STEP, IGES and other exchange formats are also supported.
