Our customers use PTC’s lightweight PVZ format widely within their PLM environment to visualize 3D CAD data, but how can that data be reused outside the PTC software ecosystem in a widely accepted format like FBX?

It is often hard to find the needed 3D product data when or if it would be beneficial for organizations to use it in applications or workflows promoting learning, insight, sales and marketing. Utilizing 3D CAD as a visual aid in work instructions is beneficial and speeds up task comprehension. But getting your hands on the correct data requires access rights and the proper tools. It also requires an understanding of these tools to get the job done correctly. If the people who have access can find the correct data, bringing it into a supported format is cumbersome, time-consuming and error-prone.
