  • Great experience
    James Dunn | November 03, 2017 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    It just works great!!! I am very pleased. Thank you very much, for developing the plugin!! It proved to be a great help to me and my company. We are know able to share 3D models with our production staff so they can see features that they can not with pictures alone. The purchasing and installation was a breeze.

  • Much better than the inbuilt converter
    Phil Tschirn | März 24, 2017 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    I bought this 3D PDF plug-in for Inventor 2 years ago and have loved it ever since. When Inventor came with its own converter built in I considered switching over to that. I convert large models for viewing by my clients. The In-built Inventor converter takes much longer...even with the most simplified settings. The 3DPDF Exprtor plug in is way more refined and handles large models with ease. It is easy to use, intuitive and makes smaller output files with great quality. Plus the makers if the program give it exceptional support.

  • Awsome app and above all a top service

    I am very satisfied with the plugin. Lowest price on the market, high quality renders, low output file size and very intuitive to use. Recommended it for company i work for - now exporting concept models is very efficient and readable for non-engineers.
