Right Hemisphere has created a solution for technical publication specialists, HMI developers, advertising agencies, and others who work with 3D visualizations of complex engineering designs to create training materials and other types of print or electronic collateral. Rather than deploy expensive CAD software licenses to people who do not design products, companies can use the company’s Deep Publish software to draw up a product repair manual, a parts catalog, or “exploded cutaway” diagram.

The solution builds on the emerging layer of solutions from Adobe Systems that reconcile business practices with the business process. Right Hemisphere software plugs into and extends Acrobat 3D for collaborative design and sourcing, technical publications and training, service and support, and sales and marketing to automate graphics and document creation, and facilitate a higher level of collaboration.

“It’s about delivering data in the format appropriate for the end user, whether that end user is a component supplier or a marketing agency,” says Kramlich. “We can deliver that data in a PDF, but also drop a 3D visualization into a PowerPoint slide, if that’s what the user wants. In short, just because the visualization came from a CATIA seat doesn’t mean that you need a CATIA seat to work with it downstream.”

Right Hemisphere's Deep Publish lets you lets users publish, view, and share 2D and 3D graphics using Microsoft PowerPoint, Word and Excel, and Adobe Acrobat. The company’s Deep Exploration Standard Edition software imports and exports more than 40 popular multimedia formats including 2D and 3D graphics, audio, video, and motion capture file formats. It maintains 3D hierarchy and materials, and translates key frame animations, kinematics, and softbody animations across all major DCC file formats. Users can author, render, and publish 3D images and animations, as well as search, view, and markup 3D graphics. The software can be upgraded to Right Hemisphere’s Deep Exploration CAD Edition for advanced CAD model translation and optimization, high quality line art illustration authoring, and integrated PGM process automation.
