Acrobat 3D Version 8 Essential Training

with Brian Wood

Video: Welcome

One of the challenges of sharing 3D CAD documents results from the sheer size of the files and the potential incompatibility among file formats. With support for major CAD applications, Acrobat 3D can now save and export 3D files as PDFs. This allows for easier viewing, slideshow creation, document sharing, and supporting document editing. In Acrobat 3D Version 8 Essential Training, Brian Wood teaches users how to create, convert, manipulate, and share 3D files using the key features of Acrobat 3D. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
