The PDS 3D software supports a variety of applications. All the supported applications use a common interface that is controlled by the PD Shell program. This ensures consistency across applications and minimizes the amount of time required to learn the product.
The PDS 3D modules provide a simple user interface through extensive use of forms. The modules also provide an on-line Help capability for easy access to information while working in the product.
The PD_Shell Environment and all batch jobs in the PDS 3D products interface to Intergraph's Network Licensing System.
