The 3D PDF Consortium is a sponsor of this year’s Congress on the Future of Engineering Software (COFES). The event, held annually for the past thirteen years, is the CAD/CAM/PLM industry gathering of developers, thought leaders, and end users where many new ideas are brought forth. The Consortium will have a Technology Suite, where several of our members will be presenting their experiences in implenting 3D PDF solutions, and discussing what business benefits they realized.

We will also hold a talk on the implications of the upcoming changes to MIL-STD-31000 to be released this fall, and how 3D PDF is becoming part of the this critical standard in how information is communicated to, and collaborated on, within the manufacturing ecosystemt that supports the U.S. Deparment of Defense (DOD) Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
