Tetra4D Automate provides a simple, easy to deploy solution to automate the creation of rich, interactive 3D PDF documents automatically or on-demand. Utilizing highly customizable Tetra4D Enrich templates, companies can now automatically generate hundreds or thousands of consistent mission-critical documents such as Product Visualization, Engineering Data Release, Design Change Notifications and Parts Catalogs.
Realize the benefits of creating data-rich 3D PDFs to further streamline documentation and communication workflows, and efficiently scale 3D PDF usage in key manufacturing use cases with less IT effort and without the need for a costly and complex enterprise-level solution. Tetra4D Automate requires minimal customization, training and integration support, allowing companies to start using the product immediately without any interruption or downtime to their processes. Tetra4D Automate translates the same formats as Tetra4D Enrich and Tetra4D Converter with full support of assembly structure, PMI, views and CAD attributes.

Features & Benefits
of Tetra4D Automate
Efficiently Scale 3D PDF Creation
Tetra 4D Automate allows manufacturers of any size to streamline documentation and communication workflows without the need for a costly and complex enterprise-level solution. Efficiently scale 3D PDF usage with minimal IT effort—fewer installations, upgrades, and software management, etc. saving both time and money.
Simple, Easy-to-Deploy Server Solution
Tetra4D Automate requires minimal customization, training and integration support, allowing companies to start using the product immediately without any interruption or downtime to their processes.
Leverage Highly Customizable Tetra4D Enrich Templates
Use Tetra4D Enrich and Adobe Acrobat Pro to create your own custom template or use existing templates to build compelling documents such as product visualization, engineering data release, design change notifications, part catalogs, maintenance manuals and technical data packages (TDPs).
The generation of 3D PDFs can be triggered by PDM/PLM events (ie: Check-in, Status change, etc), watch-folder or triggered manually from within the PDM/PLM client, allowing for flexibility within structured environments.
Aggregate Complete Product Information
3D PDFs created with Tetra4D Automate offer full support of assembly structure, PMI, Views and CAD attributes including meta-data and BOM information managed by PDM, PLM and ERP systems.
