I spent a couple of fruitful days with Carlson Software’s Louis Mullen last week. We demonstrated Carlson’s CADnet package to a client, and I have to say that I was very impressed; luckily so was the client. We created a 3D PDF file from one of their drawings (not the above) and displayed it in a basic copy of Adobe Reader, the image can be rotated and viewed from any angle. Imagine sending a PDF file to a client that they can rotate and swing around to their hearts content. They’re bound to be impressed, I know I was.
If you would like a demo, or a sample please let me know.
