Technical documentation for hardware can take on a similar pattern to software technical documentation, however in many cases some of the documentation will deal with interacting with the hardware physically. It is very useful to provide a picture reference to guide users in what you are describing when interacting with hardware. This can be either an actual photograph or a 3D render of the hardware, which in many cases is easy to obtain when the organization making the hardware documentation also created the hardware and has CAD or 3D models of the hardware or IoT device.
By using structured content to generate the documentation with picture references, Motion Storyline is the perfect solution for a flexible and easy solution to create a responsive website as well as a PDF, the two most common types of formats for users to read through documentation. In addition an animated slideshow style version is provided for users who wish to have a more interactive format.
