Pages3D 2020 includes many new upgrades designed to bolster the software's ability to create interactive and printed technical documents from 3D CAD files. New tools, like Custom Selection Sets make it easier to stay organized and Publish PDF documents with Embedded Vector Graphics which is a first for 3D publishing.
Publisher3D 2020 provides tool and publishing upgrades to image, vector, PDF, and HTML publishing. New tools makes it easier to publish the exact desired illustration size and aspect ratio.
New high DPI user interface with modern flat icons. The ribbons and command layout stay the same so there is no need to relearn the user interface.
Selections sets allow you to organize custom groups of parts and subassemblies into named sets. These sets are convenient for easily selecting, showing or hiding multple parts at one time.
Easily and efficiently apply a command to multiple selected illustrations for easy illustration creation and maintenance over time. Most common illustration commands can be applied in this way.
New storyboard selection tools make it easy to select all, none or invert he selection. These are valuable when used in tandem with the new apply command to selected illustrations feature.

Illustration guides provide a visual indicator of the user-defined illustration size. These guides are used to position views, layout markups and consider how the image will be cropped when published.
In 2020, illustrations can be rendered with transparent backgrounds when published to raster and vector formats, like PNG and SVG, that support transparency. Transparent images are easy to incorporate into other projects.
With Pages3D 2020, users can choose to publish high-quality vectors graphics to a PDF document. This generates scalable line art and often results in smaller file sizes than high-resolution images.
Faster vector publishing reduces time waiting to publish. Better quality SVG, EPS, PS and PDF vector files increase customer satisifcation with informative graphics.
Reuse sections created in Solid Edge in your 3D-based documentation. Even complex Solid Edge sections are supported.
The 2020 products are updated with a current version of the Microsoft foundation libraries resulting in a tight integration with Windows 10 that includes updated standard dialogs.
The file menu has been replaced with the more graphical backstage view common in many modern Windows-native applications, such as Microsoft Office.
