create effective 3D model animations

3D model animations are extremely effective for illustrating product-related processes in assembly and MRO environments.

The evCreator animation tool lets you create precise animations using your 3D models. Simply set a series of key frame positions you want to feature, select an action (explode, ghost, rotate, etc) and evCreator automatically animates the transitions between key frames.

Visual Communication is Essential to Product-based Companies

4 reasons visual communication is essential to product-based companies

Effective communication is critical to the success of your product. And across the entire product lifecycle there is a huge amount of information which needs to be communicated between your internal teams, as well as with external stakeholders such as suppliers and customers. Visual communication is essential to your success in managing this knowledge transfer for five reasons: It’s faster; it transcends language barriers; it’s ideally suited to describing objects; it becomes more powerful as complexity increases; and, finally, because with a little adjustment, you could probably be doing it far more effectively.

Interactive digital work instructions for manufacturing and MRO

Interactive digital work instructions are proven to drive faster learning and task completion, and reduce errors in manufacturing and MRO processes.

But if your organization is one of the 28% of U.S. manufacturing firms still relying on hard copy documentation – or among the many others using PDF, Word, or PPT docs, evolving to interactive digital work instructions can seem a tall order.

This article looks at the most important things technical authors and content creators need to consider when approaching a shift to interactive digital instructions.
