Technical documentation

Creating complex technical documents thousands of pages long, with many figures, references, tables, formulas and a table of contents, requires a reliable and capable tool. Adobe Framemaker is such a software program and is regarded as the industry standard by many technical writers worldwide.

Techmace has been using Framemaker for over two decades for the creation and maintenance of technical documentation for the maritime industry. During this time we realised how valuable a workflow using Framemaker is for vessels that have a life span of several decades and that need technology and automation upgrades every now and then. Framemaker never failed to work with older Framemaker files so that an updated operating manual could be realised quickly and very cost effective.

With Framemaker you can create and deliver future-ready technical content. Techmace will be glad to assist you.

Technical illustrations

‘A picture tells more than a thousand words’, is a common saying. For technical documentation this is even more true. For many people, most technical subjects will not be fully understood without the help of visual aids such as pictures and illustrations.

At Techmace we have specialized in the creation and processing of large numbers of high-quality pictures and technical illustrations that can be used in any type of technical publication. This way we can keep the cost low and still produce highly illustrated technical documents.

We use tools like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Blender for 3D illustrations. Vector illustrations created with Illustrator import flawlessly into Framemaker, without compromising on the quality.

Framemaker can handle raster images such as photos as well as vector illustrations such as a CAD drawing. This video explains the difference between vector and raster graphics very well.
