Vertex Connect is a collaboration and communication tool for 3D product data that makes it easy for teams to analyze massive 3D models in a browser on any device. There's no need for special software, hardware, translating CAD data, or worrying about protecting your intellectual property (IP).
As the name implies, Vertex Connect keeps your teams and customers connected. Each person can access 3D models, collaborative reviews, and other reference materials on their own time—whether that's together in a meeting or asynchronously across time zones. Everyone has an opportunity to provide feedback on product data without having to coordinate schedules, and it can all be done in one application.
Vertex has many uses throughout your product's lifecycle:
- Engineering and Product Development — Perform design reviews and walkarounds
By sharing real-time product data with your team because the whole model is available to everyone. Your entire team can add notes to be referenced by others at any time. You can drop a pin on an area of importance, draw markup, and even add a photo taken during a walkaround.
- Manufacturing — Create assembly workflows and visualize your factory floor
Give your teams the data they need for better decision-making. Real-time visualization adds clarification to work instructions, boosts workstation efficiency, and helps everyone understand the layout of the factory floor. Interacting with a 3D model instead of 2D drawings gives an immediate understanding of how to assemble parts and how workstations are laid out.
- Sales and Marketing — Give customers a thorough and easy way to review product designs
Collaborate with your customers using interactive 3D visuals to accelerate the sales cycle. Vertex makes it easy to gather insightful feedback on product designs, make revisions, and provide instant visuals of a customer's order.
- Maintenance and Service — Identify problems and define solutions
Include comments that explain issues and suggest revisions directly in the 3D product model. This makes it easy for quality, warranty, or other technical teams to resolve the issues and improve various components quickly.
- Digital Twins — Ensure clarity and context with 3D
Deploy purpose-built 3D digital twin applications to reduce design cycle times, testing times, and maintenance costs using the Vertex Platform. Looking at a 3D model gives our customers precise information to make intelligent, timely business decisions. At Vertex, we like to say, "a picture is worth a thousand words, and a 3D model is worth a million."
