Octopus PDM for Rhinoceros


Managing technical product documents can be a challenge.
Growing with complexity, we use simple systems such as CAD-Data management, then the DMS (document management system) to facilitate the creation and organization of shared content, the PDM (product data management) to collect the information of the products, finally PLM (product lifecycle management) tools to support the life cycle of products and services, from their conception, to development, to market launching, to withdrawal.
They are usually used together with computer-aided design (CAD) for technical documentation and product manuals.

Octopus for Rhinoceros is born as DMS integrated with Rhinoceros and in the future it will become a PDM.

  • users and user groups creation with specific access and function limits
