Mfg Companies leverage 3D PDF for Global Collaboration

The folks over at Plastics Today posted a great article on their Injection Molding website written by Adobe’s own Rak Bhalla that discusses the advantages 3D PDF offers to manufacturing companies. It includes data from a Harris Interactive poll that gives insight into the importance of collaboration in today’s manufacturing environments and then discusses how common problems and bottlenecks encountered when you need to collaborate with suppliers, partners and customers using 3D CAD data can be mitigated by using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended and 3D PDF. The article includes quotes about specific ROI achieved by several companies that have deployed Acrobat and 3D PDF including Eaton, Prokka, Indak, Atrus, Bradrock Industries, and Sunbeam.
The article also discusses how the Adobe Acrobat 3D PDF platform can be leveraged by other software companies and points to several CAD companies who already support 3D PDF today like SolidWorks, PTC, Lattice, Right Hemisphere, and Actify—all of whom now output 3D PDF files directly from their systems.
