Adobe Acrobat 3D Extends Visualization and Publishing of 3D Designs. The new desktop software helps to extend document-based 3D design collaboration capabilities.
Using Acrobat 3D and harnessing the reach of Adobe Reader®*, extended project teams can more quickly, securely and cost-effectively drive to completion critical communication processes that require 3D visualization.
With Acrobat 3D, design engineering, technical publishing and creative professionals in manufacturing industries such as automotive, aerospace and industrial machinery, as well as the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) market, can easily convert 3D models from a wide variety of major computer-aided design (CAD) formats and embed them into Adobe PDF files—regardless of whether they have CAD software.
The capabilities of Acrobat 3D go much further, enabling users to enhance the interactivity of 3D objects in PDF documents by editing lighting, adding textures and materials, and creating animations such as assembly and disassembly instructions. Acrobat 3D users can then enable suppliers, partners and customers to participate in a more efficient document review process simply using Adobe Reader*. When enabled by Acrobat 3D, Adobe Reader users have the ability to view product structure and leverage commenting, measurement and cross-section tools directly on 3D objects in Adobe PDF files.
