Tetra4D Converter

Convert. Visualise. Collaborate.

Tetra4D Converter is the world’s leading solution for converting native 3D CAD data into rich, interactive 3D PDF documents, including full support for accurate BREP geometry and PMI. Only Tetra4D Converter and Adobe Acrobat together allow you to control whether recipients of your 3D PDFs can measure, section, comment or export 3D data from both Acrobat and the free Adobe Reader.


Key Capabilities:

  • Share 3D CAD data with anyone
    No need to own or learn to use expensive 3D CAD systems. With Tetra4D Converter you can accurately convert 3D data from the latest versions of CATIA®, Pro/E, SOLIDWORKS, Inventor®, and all other major CAD applications to 3D PDF directly inside Adobe Acrobat.
  • Translate CAD data
    Export precise geometric 3D CAD data to STEP, IGES, JT, STL and Parasolid from all major CAD formats for use in downstream applications.
  • Always works in Adobe Reader
    Tetra4D Converter is built using the native technology found in all Acrobat products ensuring 3D content is displayed accurately every time it is opened with Adobe Reader.
  • Transition from MBD to MBE
    Tetra4D Converter provides the tools you need to share Model Based Designs with suppliers, with full support for import of PMI data such as dimensions, tolerances, annotations and intelligent PMI view states.

  • Collaborate with your team
    Given the ubiquity of Adobe Reader, 3D PDF files can be viewed, commented on and shared by virtually anyone. Creation of views, measurements and sectioning functions make collaboration simple and efficient.

  • Full representation of CAD data in a compressed file
    3D PDF’s are up to 97% smaller than the original CAD model enabling easy electronic sharing.

  • Security Options
    Ensure your intellectual property is only opened by the intended recipient with Adobe Acrobat’s password security. Control access to views, and user ability to mark up and export files.
