Acrobat 3D Version 8 is available now.
Over the past few months, more than 10,000 users participated in the beta and public preview programs for Acrobat 3D Version 8.

With Acrobat 3D Version 8, CAD, CAM, CAE, and technical publishing professionals in the aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, heavy machinery, life sciences, and AEC industries can convert virtually any 3D CAD file — including large assemblies of more than 500 megabytes — into a single PDF document. The PDF file can maintain precise geometry or be compressed several times smaller than the original file.

One of the wow features, we demonstrated in the Technology Sneak Peek of FrameMaker at the STC Conference in Minneapolis, was support for including 3D models in FrameMaker. Once 3D models are combined with other documents in PDF, Acrobat 3D Version 8 users can enable extended teams of colleagues, suppliers, partners, and customers to participate in an efficient document review process leveraging the free, ubiquitous Adobe Reader® software. Adobe Reader users can view detailed product structure and, when enabled by Acrobat 3D Version 8, have the ability to use commenting, measurement and cross-section tools directly on 3D objects in PDF files.

Acrobat 3D Version 8 supports conversion to 3D PDF from over 40 formats, including those for Autodesk Inventor, Dassault Systemes CATIA, PTC Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks, and UGS NX and I-deas (see full list at
