There are many advantages to using 3D models, including a significant increase in the effectiveness of technical documentation. 3D tools enable companies to consolidate design methods and provide for cross-collaboration. These benefits translate into fewer design and manufacturing errors, as well as the elimination of information bottlenecks and redundant efforts.
Perhaps, the most noticeable and compelling reason to embrace these technologies is the impact on reducing time-to-completion and time-to-market. Measurable studies have shown that the reuse of information throughout the engineering process workflow reduces wasted time and expense – while improving communication and collaboration. The move to advanced information dissemination is driven by business pressures on time-to-market, product Life Cycle Costs (LCCs), and Return on Investment (ROI).
3D models benefit organizations during design and technical content development. Our authors use 3D models when writing your procedures – allowing them to understand and communicate the associations between parts, assemblies, and the corresponding procedures. Models also give our authors the ability to map the path to each part and identify obstructing assemblies that require removal.
Whenever possible, end users appreciate 3D models because they provide valuable context, minimize confusion, and reduce maintenance turnaround time. DTB can demonstrate how the use of 3D modeling can benefit your support stream throughout manufacturing, technical publications, and the complete product life cycle.
