Performance Hack #003 : Drawings : 3d PDF from Drawings

Overall Concept: 3D PDF

In this tutorial we are going to talk about how SolidWorks can export a model as a 3D PDF document. Normal pdf contains a static image like a JPG. A PDF can include 3D data if the correct option is checked in the Save As dialog. The resultant file is a 3D PDF which contains an active view which can be zoomed, rotated and panned in Adobe® Reader 7 or higher. Let’s learn more about this easy method for communication and viewing purposes.
If you currently have a lower version of Adobe Reader, during testing, it seems that you will still have may of the features listed below. The only difference noted to date: is that the labels from a higher version Adobe will not show in a lower version adobe.
