Tetra4D Automate

Tetra4D Automate provides a simple, easy to deploy solution to automate the creation of rich, interactive 3D PDF documents automatically or on-demand. Utilizing highly customizable Tetra4D Enrich templates, companies can now automatically generate hundreds or thousands of consistent mission-critical documents such as Product Visualization, Engineering Data Release, Design Change Notifications and Parts Catalogs. Realize the benefits of creating data-rich 3D PDFs to further streamline documentation and communication workflows, and efficiently scale 3D PDF usage in key manufacturing use cases with less IT effort and without the need for a costly and complex enterprise-level solution. Tetra4D Automate requires minimal customization, training and integration support, allowing companies to start using the product immediately without any interruption or downtime to their processes. Tetra4D Automate translates the same formats as Tetra4D Enrich and Tetra4D Converter with full support of assembly structure, PMI, views and CAD attributes.




Features & Benefits of Tetra4D Automate


Efficiently Scale 3D PDF Creation


Tetra 4D Automate allows manufacturers of any size to streamline documentation and communication workflows without the need for a costly and complex enterprise-level solution. Efficiently scale 3D PDF usage with minimal IT effort—fewer installations, upgrades, and software management, etc. saving both time and money.

Leverage Highly Customizable Tetra4D Enrich Templates


Use Tetra4D Enrich and Adobe Acrobat Pro to create your own custom template or use existing templates to build compelling documents such as product visualization, engineering data release, design change notifications, part catalogs, maintenance manuals and technical data packages (TDPs).

Aggregate Complete Product Information


3D PDFs created with Tetra4D Automate offer full support of assembly structure, PMI, Views and CAD attributes including meta-data and BOM information managed by PDM, PLM and ERP systems.


Simple, Easy-to-Deploy Server Solution


Tetra4D Automate requires minimal customization, training and integration support, allowing companies to start using the product immediately without any interruption or downtime to their processes.

On-Demand Flexibility


The generation of 3D PDFs can be triggered by PDM/PLM events (ie: Check-in, Status change, etc), watch-folder or triggered manually from within the PDM/PLM client, allowing for flexibility within structured environments.

Tetra4D Enrich goes beyond addressing basic workflows by enabling users to make any type of document 3D and interactive. Critical docs such as inspection reports, part catalogs, engineering data release documents, advanced product presentations, work instructions and 3D MBD technical data packages (TDPs) all become that much more valuable with 3D.
