Q - question

Publish Inventor models to 3D PDF.

A - answer Export of 3D models to the 3D PDF (.pdf) format can be performed in the application Inventor Publisher. Besides the plain publishing of static 3D assemblies from Inventor and any other CAD application, it can create also complete service manuals, explosion views and assembly instructions - not only in PDF, but also in DWF, AVI videoanimations, Flash presentations, or in the .ipm format for the mobile applicaton Inventor Publisher Viewer.

3D PDF model

A sample 3D service manual (Parker) published from an Inventor 3D model - Parker-Service-Manual.pdf (3D PDF, 3.4MB) and the same model in DWF - Parker-Service-Manual.dwf (3D DWF, 2.0MB).

Another option for Inventor is to use the add-on PDF exporter Quadrispace Share3D (supports also IPT/IAM), or using the 3D DWF format as an alternative.
