Enhanced 3D Tools

Adds custom render styles, more exploded view tools, parts lists, sectioning, part search tools, model tree.

Solid Edge PMI Import

PMI data can be exported from Solid Edge and used to display accurate dimensions and annotations in your documents and illustrations. PMI data can be published as part of your document to print, PDF or HTML5 for powerful interactive 3D communication.

Enhanced Illustration Tools

Create step-by-step processes, markup illustrations with balloons and callouts.

HTML5 Publishing

Publish directly to industry standard HTML. The HTML files are based on "Powered by Share3D" technology so interactive 3D documents can be viewed with any modern browser on PCs, Macs, iOS and Android devices.

Publish Animations

Produce AVI or Flash movies.

Publish Vector Graphics

This provides an additional publishing format. Vectors, or line drawings, can be published to a variety of common vector formats.

Configurations and Merge Models

Makes it easy to work with large models. Configurations allow you to define and work with subsets of parts. With merge models 3D CAD from various CAD programs can be merged together. Users use this when the primary designs is better explain with props or tools in some graphics.

Storyboard Wizard

Create a step-by-step process from an exploded view. Saves time since the viewpoints, visible parts and selected parts are all set up automatically based on the exploded view. You can also rapidly create a series of isolated part views from a parts list.

Update Wizard

With update tools you can update entire sets of illustrations by re-importing the 3D model. This is especially useful because it allows users to get started on graphics before the design phase is complete and when 3D CAD designs change, little work is needed to update graphics.
