PROSTEP publishes White Paper on neutral 3D formats

Darmstadt – PROSTEP AG has published a White Paper entitled “3D Formats in the Field of Engineering – A Comparison”. It provides an overview and serves as an orientation guide for companies faced with selecting the appropriate neutral 3D format for specific use cases that are frequently encountered in practice.

Neutral 3D formats are indispensible for the distribution and exchange of 3D models in engineering departments and in upstream and downstream departments and divisions when the original system is not available, the distribution of native data is too expensive and a high level of detail is not necessary, or if a company’s intellectual property needs to be protected. The selection of a certain format will determine, for example, the range of possible applications and the follow-up costs involved. Which neutral 3D format is the right one for a company will depend on a number of factors.

PROSTEP is confronted with this issue on a day to day basis and in this White Paper provides help with identifying which 3D format is appropriate for a given use case.
