RapidCatalog provides a single authoring environment to create 3D interactive parts catalogs that use 3D explosions to illustrate complex mechanical assemblies.
Its interactive 3D environment with part highlighting and drill-down navigation improves the user experience and reduces ordering and purchasing errors. The tool increases the productivity of authors and cuts catalog production costs by reusing existing CAD data.
RapidCatalog is a component of RapidAuthor. You can purchase RapidCatalog as a standalone product.
