Flatirons Solutions and Cortona3D are pleased to announce the integration of Cortona3D Solo rendering technology with the CORENA Pinpoint and CORENA Pinpoint Mobile Interactive Electronic Technical Publication (IETP) viewers.
CORENA Pinpoint and CORENA Pinpoint Mobile by Flatirons Solutions are the aviation industry’s most advanced manufacturer-independent IETP viewers, allowing maintainers to access airframe, engine, and component manuals and work cards from a wide array of manufacturers. By providing a single source for all of the technical information needed to perform maintenance and repair work, the products deliver strong productivity gains for aircraft maintenance technicians (AMTs).
Airlines do not need to create new 3D models to take advantage of this solution. 3D models often created by OEMs using Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing solutions like AutoCAD, Solid Edge, or CATIA are converted into lightweight 3D data and published alongside the S1000D XML as part of technical content supplied to airlines as part of new generation aircraft.
The integration of CORENA Suite and Cortona3D technologies brings together the industry’s leading OEM-independent technical information viewer with the world’s most advanced solution for displaying 3D models. By providing technical publications and work cards that are enriched with 3D assets, the joint solution brings dramatic usability and ergonomic improvements to AMTs.
3D is increasingly important both for manufacturers, who want to create more interactive documentation, and for operators, who want to better empower maintenance staff in their complex work. As part of this integration, CORENA Pinpoint and Cortona3D models will support advanced features like:
As the aviation industry grapples with a growing skills shortage, there is an increasing need for maintenance teams to match the level of interactivity and convenience of consumer software when delivering technical information to new generation workers. The combined CORENA Pinpoint / Cortona3D offer helps both airlines and manufacturers meet this requirement.
