3D PDF files can be created from Universal 3D (U3D), Industry Foundation Classes ( IFC text) files, and SolidWorks part and assembly (.sldprt and .sldasm) files. 3D PDFs can also be created from within Revit, Navisworks, and SketchUp Pro.
A new 3D model window can be created on an existing PDF by using the 3D Editor.
Note: Creating from SolidWorks or SketchUp Pro files requires that both the application (SolidWorks or SketchUp Pro) and either Bluebeam Revu CAD or eXtreme be installed on the computer.
To create a 3D PDF from an existing 3D model:
From the file type list to the right of the File Name field, select 3D Files.
Navigate to the desired file and select it, then click Open. The New 3D PDF dialog box appears.
See Interacting with 3D PDFs for information about displaying 3D PDFs.
It is also possible to add a 3D file to an existing PDF. This way 3D and traditional text or graphic content can exist on the same page.
Navigate to the desired file and select it, then click Open. The file will convert and the Add 3D Content dialog box appears.
