LOTAR 3D Visualization Workgroup
Goals and Objectives
The objective is to define common recommendations for LT Archiving and Retrieval of 3D Visualization information. These recommendations will be, consistent with LT Archiving and Retrieval of information concerning CAD models and related information, throughout the full product life cycle.
3D Visualization is any technique for efficiently communicating information and data (i.e. 3D models, 3D predefined views, diagrams, animations, etc) for the display of definition data, derived data, and other archived data artifacts.
The goal of the 3D Visualization Working Group is:
- To identify use cases for long term archiving of the 3D visualization information,
- To define requirements for the archiving of the 3D visualization information
- To provide recommendations for the 3D Visualization standards by the LOTAR community
The data can be any 3D representation (3D geometry, 3D PMI & annotation, Assembly structure, user defined attributes, …) from the Mechanical, Electrical, and Composite domains.
Associated LOTAR use cases
The following list of use cases has been identified:
|L-T Archiving and Retrieval of derived visualization data for certification||Release in 2014|
|L-T Archiving and Retrieval of derived visualization data for internal use||Release in 2014|
|L-T Archiving and Retrieval of derived visualization data for external support||Release in 2014|
List of LOTAR Documentation
The working group does not deliver standards documentation. However, the working group has generated guidelines for long-term archiving and retrieval of 3D visualization data. These include:
- Use Cases
- Compliance matrix template
The documents can be downloaded from the LOTAR Standard – Related Documents page.
- ISO 24517 PDF/E – ISO 14739 PRC
- ISO 10303 STEP AP242 Tessellated Geometry
- ISO 14306 JT
