Use 3D CAD data to create rich 2D product documentation with our powerful 3D technical illustration software. Empower your technical illustrators and drive autonomous and efficient workflows.
technical illustration software
Canvas X3 is the 3D-compatible illustration solution that combines a rich graphic toolset with the ability to import and handle 3D CAD models, making it easy to create powerfully precise visual documentation.
- Combine 2D and 3D graphics. Enjoy unmatched control over 3D model visualization and work with greater independence and efficiency.
- Rotate and explode 3D models. Ghost, hide and highlight parts and apply numerous graphic effects to models for technical illustrations.
- Import and work with CAD metadata to create automatic annotations and bill of materials tables.
“We were blown away by the user friendliness of Canvas X3’s ability to focus on 2D views of 3D models.”
manipulate, visualize, repeat
with Canvas X3 3D technical illustration software, visualizations of 3D CAD objects can be edited and re-edited as many times as you need, without you having to request new source files. X3 imports all the data you need to create compelling, custom illustrations of models for a raft of 2D assets.
show, hide, and ghost any part in your assembly to focus your audience on what you want them to see. use color to highlight parts within your assemblies, and move parts along their axes for exploded views which show your audience everything they need to know.
get every point of view
display your 3D object precisely as you need to, using both orthographic and perspective views combined with a host of render modes including smooth, outlines, wireframes, technical, flat, and silhouette. vectorize your views with unbeatable detail and quality and export to a huge range of image and vector formats.
simplicity and value
By making Canvas X3 available across our teams we expect to drive significant efficiencies in our documentation workflows
Canvas X³ enables us to show with absolute clarity how our technology and processes work
We’ve cut the time we spend on critical documentation by up to 50%. Canvas X³ frees our engineers to focus on what’s most important.
I really like the annotation lens because you can instantly zoom into the precise point on the model or process that you need to show in more detail
We wanted something that was suited to the job. Canvas X³ is a great communication tool
unmatched 3D CAD file format support
Canvas X3 can import and access data in over 90 File Formats, including files created in all leading 3D CAD packages.
