Acrobat 3D 8 will be available in Beta version by March

The Adobe Company has announced soon release of the Acrobat 3D beta version, a program of implementing 3D-models in PDF documents. The eighth version has a lot of new features, in particular, optimization of models for further sending by email (it is said, that 150 MB CAD file can be turned into 1MB PDF one ), addition of such information as size, annotations, information about developer .

Much attention is paid to the protection from copyright - while being viewed in Acrobat Reader models will be displayed without detail, in the form of mosaic.
However, depending on the developers willing, empowered persons will be able to view detailed version as well. But the extraction from Acrobat Reader won’t be available. The new version of Acrobat 3D will help to solve the problems of formats incompatibility, because it can export Cad-files into commonly used formats, as STEP (Standard for the Exchange of Product model data). A demo version of Acrobat 3D 8 is appointed at the end of March. It will be compatible with Windows Vista.
