Quality product documentation is vital to your organization's success and critical for your customers, suppliers, distributors and employees. The key to effective product documentation for complex equipment is integrated 3D communications. Whether it's for maintenance, customer support, operational procedures or training, 3D communications provide intuitive, knowledge transfer, that users 'get' easily. However, traditional product documentation methods are error prone, costly and slow.


Cortona3D RapidAuthor is a powerful cost-effective authoring suite giving organizations the flexibility to produce all support documentation such as interactive Parts Catalogs, Maintenance Manuals, Training Materials and Work Instructions. The tools included in the suite enable organizations to reuse existing CAD data or other 3D source material, to author interactive 3D visualizations for more effective support documentation, dramatically reducing effort and timelines. Its intuitive interface enables users with no 3D expertise to create compelling simulations and associated text simultaneously. Tools in the suite include:


This tool provides an easy to use intuitive framework that allows authors to easily create 3D digital interactive maintenance and operation manuals. RapidManual uses animated 3D simulations to clearly communicate complex mechanical procedures. Using existing 3D data speeds-up product documentation development and results in better product manuals at a fraction of the cost. 3D manuals encourage 'Visual Know-How' rather than reading comprehension, minimizing translation issues and improving information retention. more...


This tool produces digital, interactive illustrated parts catalogs that use 3D 'explosions' to illustrate complex mechanical assemblies. Its interactive 3D environment with drill down navigation improves the user experience and puts an end to ordering and purchasing errors. It cuts catalog production costs by reusing existing CAD data and produces a better parts catalog that, in turn, reduces the number of customer support inquiries. more...


This tool combines existing CAD assets with training documentation to produce digital, interactive training applications that use animated 3D simulations. These can be used as standalone applications or integrated with existing SCORM-compliant Learning Management Systems. Research has proven time and again that interactive 3D learning improves comprehension, retention and on-the-job performance and costs less than product mockups, physical simulations, and other active learning approaches. more...


.RapidWorkInstruction enables the fast and easy production of digital interactive work instructions, job cards and assembly instructions. It re-uses content directly from engineering CAD enabling the rapid creation of the MBOM and bill of process. Manufacturing engineers can quickly and easily create 3D animations ensuring that assembly workers, even in off-shore locations, know what to do and how to do it - a visual explanation delivered in a work instruction saves time and increases effectiveness. more...


RapidText is an XML editor targeted at the creation of large textual sections of maintenance documentation where 3D graphics is not needed. RapidText's screen layout and interface elements are arranged to facilitate the text editing process. more...


RapidIllustratoris a tool in the Cortona3D RapidAuthor suite tailored to the creation of 2D illustrations from 3D geometry for parts catalogs, procedures and other types of after-sales documentation. more...


Cortona2D Editor Pro is a graphics editor that supports the creation, modification, and rendering of layered graphic primitives (ellipse, polygon, spline, bitmap, raster). This editor allows authors and illustrators to edit legacy graphics or manually edit 2D graphics created with Cortona3D RapidAuthor


RapidDeveloper is a complementary product to Cortona3D's RapidAuthor tools. It enables RapidAuthor users to customise the data import process and the output format for RapidAuthor projects. RapidDeveloper consists of two products; RapidConfiguration and RapidSpecification.


This tool facilitates the analysis of source CAD data for controlling and customizing the data import settings. RapidConfiguration allows loading sample 3D data and contains user-friendly wizards for choosing the required settings. It enables the user to specify and map the data to fit the template also called specification within RapidAuthor. Specifically the user will be able to customise the following properties:

Adjust the 3D data structure
Choose the measurement units for correct scaling of 3D geometry
Set the axes orientation
Modify the surface properties
Create custom levels of details for each part
Map the CAD metadata for reuse in the document

The RapidAuthor tools use a template, called a specification component, to determine the format and appearance of the created document. Specifications are plug-in elements and some industry standard specifications are supplied with RapidAuthor out of the box (e.g. DITA 1.1, ATA iSpec 2200, S1000D Procedural and IPD data module). RapidSpecification provides the user with the ability to create custom specifications to meet their authoring requirements. It enables users to define:

The metadata used in the specification
The document type (e.g. Parts Catalog, Maintenance Procedure, Computer Based Training)
The format of the document (e.g. column headings, column width, set of available actions)
The file format of the published output and its appearance
