What’s Tetra4D Reviewer?

Tetra4D Reviewer is a powerful 3D CAD data translator and active mockup tool supporting over 20 major CAD formats. Users have the ability to Review in an active mockup environment to measure precise geometry, merge and modify data, edit materials, textures, lighting, and more. Once the modifications have been made, customers can export to a neutral CAD format such as STEP or X_T, and the universally accessible 3D PDF. Tetra4D Reviewer is included free with the purchase of the Converter or Enrich plugin.

Tetra4D Reviewer Allows You to:

  • Combine heterogeneous CAD data
  • Measure & cross-section precise geometry
  • Calculate to display bounding box & physical properties
  • Create balloons and markups
  • Modify names and position of parts, materials, textures, colors and lighting
  • Create high resolution raster and vectorized screen shots
  • Create exploded views & animations
  • Analyze draft angles and mold parting lines
  • X64bit application for larger model processing
Tetra Product Benefits

Improve Efficiency

Reduce cycle time and improve communication with intelligent 3D PDFs from Tetra4D. Share CAD data quickly, easily and accurately with downstream users who may not own or use expensive 3D CAD systems such as CATIA®, PTC® Creo, Pro/E, NX™, Solid Edge®, SolidWorks®, Autodesk® Inventor® and AutoCAD®.

share securely

Protect and control your CAD data using the powerful security and digital rights management tools from Adobe. You decide what information is shared, and who you are sharing it with by requiring signatures, passwords, and other tools to prevent others from extracting your intellectual property.

create affordably

Efficiently create advanced, interactive 3D PDF documents without programing expertise. Customize and change templates to suit internal or external requirements without hiring costly consultants to build customized layouts. Automatically generate 3D PDFs directly from any PDM/PLM, or internal storage network, without purchasing expensive enterprise PDF solutions.
