New here. I’ve been in the technical communication trade for decades, several decades. I was owner/operator of a technical manual production company before Aldus PageMaker and Ventura Publisher surfaced as the “must have” solutions.
My question today relates to leveraging 3D engineering models for use in 2D and 3D interactive deliverables. This question pertains mostly to authors creating hardware documents such as user guides, installation instructions, maintenance manuals, etc.. When leveraging existing 3D engineering geometry (SLDASM, SLDPRT, IGS, SAT, STEP, etc.), what tools and process do you use to manipulate the 3D models for migration into your documents?
