White Paper – 3D Formats in the Field of Engineering – A Comparison

In the world of movies and television, 3D is the new buzz word. In the field of engineering, the 3D representation of products has been a reality for some time. What were once physical models are now virtual models and these models are being used in a myriad of novel ways.

And while virtual 3D models have allowed access to new types of design, they also have hang ups. Chiefly, 3D models come in several different file types and they don’t always communicate well with every piece of software. What’s more, each file type describes geometry differently and highlights different attributes of a model.

So, what file type should you be using for your engineering models? That’s what we’re here to learn with this white paper.

In this white paper you will learn:
  • What type of 3D files are most widely used in engineering applications
  • The strengths and weaknesses of each filetype
  • You will also see a clear evaluation where each filetype is best suited for use
