Exporting Exploded Views to 3D pdf

In SolidWorks 2010, is there a way to save the exploded view that is created in SolidWorks as a 3D pdf?  I would like to use the exploded view in a 3D pdf that can serve as a document on our website to help with spare/replacement parts ordering.  pdf is a nice format for this.  Adobe Acrobat Pro Extended has tools for creating exploded views, but if I have already created them in SolidWorks, I would rather not have to duplicate the work.  Beside, the tools for exploding are MUCH better in SolidWorks than in Adobe.  I've tried displaying the exploded configuration and saving to pdf, but when I open it in Adobe (Acrobat or Reader) the assembly is no longer exploded.
