The Importance of 3D Technical Illustrations in Service

  2. 2. 2 • Augmented Reality Easier and faster understanding of the task • Shorter time to identify parts • Just in time training Per task Novice vs Expert level • Sequenced animations Newer/Younger service techs are used to animated content HOW 3D ADDS VALUE: IN THE FIELD
  3. 3. 3 • 3D illustration can require less time to create • Reduce drawing expertise means SME’s can create their own content • 3D illustrations are generally one step removed from Engineering – This can reduce update cycle times • 3D animation can be created before parts are manufactured – Video requires real world parts in all configurations HOW 3D ADDS VALUE: CREATION PROCESS
  4. 4. 4 • Incomplete CAD data – Sourced parts data may only be PDF or other 2D formats – No historical requirement for Engineering to create complete models • Missing hardware – Nuts, Bolt, clamp, etc. • Missing details such as holes, hoses and wire harnesses • Difficult access to 3D CAD – Engineer may not provide access to 3D CAD • No 3D CAD data – Older projects may not have 3D data available SOME DIFFICULTIES IN CREATION OF 3D ILLUSTRATIONS
  5. 5. 5 • Make the CAD complete – Supplier parts – Company CAD data • Accessible CAD data – Reduced creation effort – Reduced maintenance cost – Increased product value • No CAD data – This is a pure business decision – Is there enough value in modeling OVERCOMING THESE DIFFICULTIES
