SOLIDWORKS – Saving your 3D model to 3D PDF

SOLIDWORKS model can be saved as a 3D PDF, allowing others to view it using Adobe reader and use some basic functions like measure. However, please note this measure system isn’t the same as SOLIDWORKS, it selects a Vertex rather than a line, so please be mindful when measuring inside PDFs.

Nevertheless, it is still a convenient method in passing on information about your model to others for review or for visual understanding.
