3DA Systems – 3D PDF Converter Product review.

January 25, 2014

Just posted a review of this product at Arch-Intel you might want to check out.

The 3D PDF Converter for Revit works as an add-0n and has great potential.

On a simple, new project the program would probably work fine but I hit the performance wall in a number of areas that proved to be shortcomings of the application.

If you group elements in your model, use phases (existing / new) or want to have nested families processed in your 3D PDF then you’ll need to wait for the upgrade.

Not so 3PDF’d
