Adobe Acrobat 3D Version 8 Classroom in a Book (Classroom in a Book)by Adobe Creative Team
Synopses & Reviews
Adobe Acrobat 3D, the newest member of the Acrobat family, enables engineering and technical professionals to publish and share 3D design information from major CAD applications with virtually any computer user, significantly enhancing collaboration within extended design and manufacturing teams. The result can be improved accuracy and a reduction in design and manufacturing costs, effort, and time to market. Realizing that the users Acrobat 3D is designed for--creative and engineering design pros who work with complex electronic documents--aren't going to interrupt their production cycles to take a class, Adobe has brought the classroom to them. Through a series of self-paced lessons (each of which builds on the last and includes hands-on projects that the reader can create using the files on the accompanying DVD), this guide acquaints users with all of Acrobat 3D's regular features for creating, reviewing, editing, commenting on, restructuring, and preflighting PDF files. It also includes thorough coverage of Acrobat 3D’s new industrial-strength features, such as creating Adobe PDF documents with 3D designs from major CAD applications; inserting 3D CAD designs into Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint and converting to Adobe PDF; creating rich, interactive documents with 3D content and more. Professional tips and techniques are scattered throughout.
