Default Acrobat 3D (Windows)

I'm not sure how Acrobat 3D affects the field of publishing. I'm also not sure why someone would want to receive an AutoCAD file as a 3D PDF. Unless, maybe it is an easy way to get an AutoCAD file ready for press.

Anyway, maybe Adobe is not focusing this product on publishing. But in case anyone is interested, here it is: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat3d/main.html

Nothing to do with publishing, I don't think, but imagine being able to distribute a document to your customers, one in which they can zoom in and out, rotate, and otherwise manipulate a 3D view of your product or part.

I followed the link you posted and downloaded the sample pdf with embedded 3d ... um ... image? Seems not to be the word. <g>

Quite interesting to play with (I have an up to date copy of Reader 7 to open it in; I expect it'd require that).

Wish I had time to test this. But then again, I don't work with 3D CAD drawings.

Same here ... I've no reason to need this, but it's fun to play with and interesting to know that it's available.
