Create and Share Your Data as a 3D PDF

One of the most frustrating feelings is not being able to do something because of software limitations. FME breaks down these walls with the 3D PDF writer! Take 3D models like CAD designs or STL models and convert them into a PDF so that you can share your ideas with virtually anyone.

Make Your 3D Models Accessible

FME will help you connect the highly technical world to the general public by giving you the ability to transform data and 3D models to easily shareable formats like PDF. Use a combination of transformers to connect your readers and writers by dragging and dropping the tools where you want them. That’s it! No coding needed.
