The Rapid product family streamlines the authoring of technical documentation as aftermarket parts, service, support and training materials are produced from existing CAD in one third of the time at as little as 12.5% of cost.
The inclusion of interactive 3D content such as simulations of procedures and exploded views of parts in operations/maintenance manuals, spare parts lists, and eLearning applications improves the quality and the usability of these deliverables which in turn increases service revenues and workforce productivity whilst reducing errors.
A laborious spare parts catalog development process that is error prone and does not enable the user to easily identify the relevant part and associated data can result in escalating sales support costs and loss of revenue to aftermarket competition.
Cortona3D RapidCatalog is the first out-of-the-box toolkit for the fast and easy production of 3D Illustrated Parts Catalogs (IPC) / Electronic Parts Catalogs (EPC) / Online Interactive Parts Catalogues. RapidCatalog uses 3D 'explosions' to communicate complex assemblies that everyone can understand. Its interactive environment with drill down navigation improves the user experience and puts an end to ordering and purchasing errors, inefficiency and lack of productivity.
Increase aftermarket revenue and customer loyalty
Cut parts catalog production and maintenance costs
Minimise customer errors and product returns
Generate 2D images of your 3D explosions
Attach existing CGM images to your parts catalog
Minimise support costs as users can self-serve
Increase competitive advantage on 'total product'
Lower order processing costs
Communicating complex procedures to a global market using traditional methods is laborious, costly and error prone.
Cortona3D RapidManual is the first out-of-the-box toolkit that automates the fast and easy production of 3D Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs) / Operating Procedures / Assembly Work (Installation) Instructions. RapidManual uses animated 3D simulations to clearly communicate complex mechanical procedures. 3D manuals expand know-how, minimizing translation issues and improving information retention.
Concurrent product and documentation development speeds time to market
Improved manuals increase revenue opportunities and customer loyalty
Re-using existing resources cuts costs massively
Attach existing S1000D documentation to auto gen your animations
A 2D CGM image of your 3D view can be generated if required
Share outputs and re-use content in downstream processes
Achieve compliance and aid safe usage
Easily add audio to your animation
Research has proven time and again that interactive 3D learning improves comprehension, retention and on-the-job performance and costs less than product mock-ups, physical simulations, and other active learning approaches.
Cortona3D RapidLearning is the first out-of-the-box learning toolkit for producing digital interactive training applications using animated 3D simulations. It combines existing CAD assets with training documentation to generate visually realistic, interactive learning. RapidLearning guides trainers through the production process, prompting them to illustrate each step of the training scenario with a corresponding 3D animation and build a complete RapidLearning simulation.
Optimise return on investment (ROI) for training
Cut training program development and distribution costs
Accelerate training timelines
Lower localization costs
Increase effectiveness of learning
Attach existing S1000D doc. to auto. gen. your animations
Generate a 2D CGM image of your 3D view
Train in the field
LMS and SCORM compliance
Add audio to your animation easily
Is the first solution that gives users in the field an intuitive way to attach feedback information to a specific part of equipment. By interacting directly with online, digital 3D models, users can attach information to parts/assemblies in the 3D viewer and send it back to a central data repository for analysis and troubleshooting. RapidTag makes collecting customer feedback on operation, maintenance and equipment repair easier and faster than ever before.
