Enable on-site markups, redlines, comments, and design changes and communicate digitally between the design team and construction management onsite. Have rapid access to any needed paper-based plans thanks to Adobe® Acrobat®‘s support for large-format printers. Tracking and archiving all comments, markups, changes, and approvals using Acrobat®‘s built-in tools means faster communication now and better understanding of why and how changes occurred.
Reduce design and management costs
By making design communication and change management faster and more affordable, you keep your project costs under control and avoid costly delays and mistakes in the field. Get answers to the general contractor and subcontractors in hours instead of days.
Improve accuracy and speed of estimates
Securely send both 2D and 3D design data to the general contractor for “constructability” reviews and bidding. Sending, collaborating, and reviewing all project information such as construction cost estimates and project timelines in the PDF format makes for easier communication and faster decision making.
Quickly edit and retrieve files from anywhere, and track file changes. Both experienced Revit® users and non-CAD users alike can easily access all of the structured model data from within the integrated file tree, include or exclude all part metadata, assembly structure, and BOM information.
Data archiving for long term security and accessibility
PDF is the international standard for long-term engineering data archival and retrieval, for reliable and secure exchange of engineering data. Don’t rely on proprietary viewing and archiving solutions based on DWF or other unspecified formats. PDF has stood the test of time and the format and standard are open and maintained by the International Standards Organization (ISO). Exchanging and archiving your critical engineering data for the entire lifecycle of your buildings in the PDF format ensures access to your data 25, 50, even 100 years in the future.
Share Revit® Visualizations
3D PDF Converter for Revit® is the fastest way to get fully navigable 3D visualizations into a PDF doc and into the hands of reviewers.
Ease of Use
No need to learn a whole new set of conventions. Our simple PDF export needs no learning time so you’ll be creating 3D PDFs in moments.
Make your mark with industry-specific customizable templates, complete with your company’s logo.
3D PDFs with the free Adobe® Reader
Anyone can access your 3D PDFs with the easy to use and free Adobe® Reader installed on 98% of PCs worldwide. Quickly and easily export Revit® models to 3D PDF directly from your Revit® Add-In menu. The 3D PDF Converter for Revit® will export all elements directly to 3D PDF from the 3D view. Alternative 3D model views can also be exported from copies or view ports, allowing you to select defined model Orient Views – i.e. Sections, Elevations, Plane views separately.
Help your clients fully visualize the brilliance of your designs by taking them on a virtual tour of your design in 3D PDF. Create richer, more engaging client presentations and win more business. Pre-defined orientations and views are automatically created when exporting to 3D PDF, which are similar to the default Revit® model view ports. Or, use the intuitive interface within Adobe® Acrobat® to create custom views and sections of your 3D Revit® data and save the resultant 3D PDF.
Design commenting and edits from anywhere
Add comments to any part of the 3D PDF to communicate and track changes across stakeholders, through the easy to use Adobe® Reader.
Securing files with PDFs
Use PDF publishing to lock files and protect your proprietary data.
3D PDF Converter for Revit® is an integrated software working within the Revit® environment that enables users to publish rich, interactive, 3D PDF files that are up to 97% smaller than the original Revit® 3D models.
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.
