The partnership between Siemens Digital Industries Software and Cortona3D will enable Siemens Digital Industries Software clients to create visually intuitive 3D interactive technical publications using the standard Teamcenter interface. Cortona3D Rapid products will be launched directly from Teamcenter and information passed seamlessly from one application to the other. When authoring is finished, the resulting documentation and graphics will be automatically stored in Teamcenter content management. Updates to content may be automatically processed or require author approval. Publishing can be automated and content delivered to Teamcenter MRO.
