Dear All,

Expecting any one suggestion or ideas.

Export your model as obj (or something else that photoshop can read). Then load your model in photoshop and right-click on the 3d layer and choose export. There you can specifiy to export as u3d. Then you can import this file in Acrobat pro and save as a pdf… but you will need acrobat pro for this…

You need photoshop cs3 or later for 3d model importing. It will definitely import a .obj. As mentioned you need acrobat pro or acrobat X to import u3d files to use in a pdf. If you do not have access to cs3 or later there are other alternatives for viewing models. Do you specifically need to have a 3d pdf? If not you can download the .fbx plugin for quicktime, you can then export you scene or model as an fbx and open in quicktime and it will server a a 3d viewer. Thee are also numerous other obj viewers available on the net just look around. Wings 3d is a full modeling app that is free and very lite in size and should be able to open several types of 3d files.
