Architecture 3D PDF

Field Operations:

3D PDF BIM business solutions enable rapid exchange of digital information between remote locations. The application allows the possibility of taking advantage of off-site expertise easily. It is possible to review and analyze models and plans and decide on next steps in real time. 3D PDF allows to view parts and components of the model without needing special software, or complicated workflows. You can pull apart buildings, cut through floors, and view simulated animation for assembly instructions. Making 3D PDF models available to personnel in other locations, reduces margin for error and minimizes delays and costs associated with travel.

3D BIM Technology

3D PDF Converter for Revit is an integrated software working within the Revit environment that enables users to publish rich, interactive, 3D PDF files. Published files are significantly smaller than the original Revit 3D models. The software uses the Adobe 3D Technology as a one button file conversion that is easily exchangeable and viewed with the free Adobe Reader. The converter is available individually or bundled with Adobe Acrobat XI Pro full version or upgrade. The software connects the Building Information Modeling (BIM) community for the first time with a Revit plug-in that supports data sharing using 3D PDF based on the PRC file format. The software uses the same native technology used by Adobe to create and consume 3D PDF file. The file generated from Revit design has guaranteed compatibility with Adobe® Acrobat® and Adobe® Reader. The result is accurate, data-rich 3D models that are up to 97% smaller than the original Revit file. The trial version allows for 15 executions, we hope that this trial will get you familiar with 3DA’s 3D PDF Converter for Revit and encourages you to use it on a daily basis. For helpful hints please refer to our 3DA Systems YouTube channel for tutorial tips and tricks.  

Sample 3D PDFs

The Adobe® Reader® 9 or later software is needed to use the 3D PDF files that can be downloaded below. Please be sure that you have the latest version of Reader for the best results.

These files can be opened in your internet browser only if you are opening them with Adobe® Reader®. However, we recommend downloading them to your desktop by right clicking on the link and selecting “save as” then opening them from there. Please enable “Double Side Rendering” in Adobe® Reader to view the 3D PDFs.
