They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In today’s high tech companies, they understand the value of providing detailed accurate information on demand. You can enrich the content of your information by delivering technical illustrations and intelligent graphics to optimize product information in the forms of assembly instructions, parts catalogs, operator and service manuals, training documents, and more.
This interactive web session shows how you can automate the process of creating and updating high-quality technical illustrations and animations with Arbortext IsoDraw, a single software tool for all of your 2D and 3D illustration needs.
During this session we show you how you can:
- Repurpose rich, original CAD data to quickly develop 2D and 3D illustrations and animations
- Automate the updating of illustrations and animations when engineering designs change throughout a product’s lifecycle.
- Prepare illustrations automatically for publishing in multiple delivery formats, including print, interactive and Web media to eliminate expensive, labor-intensive formatting tasks
- Convey explicit service procedures by displacing lengthy text with illustrations
- Deliver a competitive advantage in your product information time-to-market by producing more illustrations in a shorter time
