Key Information

Optimize your product and service content with technical illustrations within assembly instructions, parts catalogs, operator and service manuals, and training documents.

Arbortext IsoDraw provides all the capabilities you need to quickly create and deliver high-quality illustrations either from scratch, by photo-tracing, or by repurposing existing legacy 2D and 3D CAD graphics.

  • Improve your content’s performance using illustrations to reduce errors and improve customer satisfaction
  • Reuse valuable 2D and 3D CAD data to quickly develop intelligent graphics to optimize product and support information
  • Ensure technical illustrations and animations are up to date with an associative link to the original CAD engineering data
  • Eliminate expensive, labor-intensive illustration formaIng tasks with automatic preparation for publishing in multiple delivery formats

  • PTC Arbortext IsoDraw gives you the unique ability to maintain an associative link to real-time CAD data, which simplifies the updating of illustrations and animations when engineering designs change throughout a product’s lifecycle.
  • Your illustrators can select full assemblies or components, and break down the 3D file gradually into individual spare parts illustrations–with no additional CAD designer assistance needed.
  • Callouts created using Arbortext IsoDraw are automatically converted into hotspots to aid interactive, graphic navigation such as those required in Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs) and Publications (IETPs)
  • IsoDraw complies with Industry standards (S1000D, ATA, CALS, J2008) and publishing standards (W3C, WebCGM, SVG, PNG)
  • The integration between PTC Arbortext IsoDraw and Windchill PDMLink® enables the most complete associative illustration process possible, from original CAD data to the delivery of product information.
