    3DPDF

    Kevin De Smet
      I have exported a 3DPDF of a part I made and got a render of on the SolidWorks Gallery, and I'd like to add this as a comment on my submission.

      I'm just wondering, what "is" a 3DPDF?
      I know the file-size is insanely small.
      I like to think of it as a 360 degrees photograph, is this somewhat correct?

      Can people take the 3DPDF and manipulate it like a .STEP or .IGES?
      Or manipulate it like an .STL?

      Or is it un-manipulable?

      Because if it's an un-manipulable file, that's fantastic, a safe way to share parts online and still be able to view them in 3D on just about any computer through .PDF!
