ScanTo3D will not give you good results, as it only works with point cloud data.
The best method is to use Adobe Acrobat Professional Extended version 9. Version 10 no longer supports exporting CAD data. Then, from within Acrobat, you can export to a native SolidWorks file.
Maybe there is a freelance consultant out there who has Acrobat Pro Extended 9 and could do it for you?
Thanks for the reply. I have requested the files be sent to me as either native CAD file formats (SolidWorks 2010 or Pro-E WF 3.0), or as a Parasolid, STEP, or IGES. There is simply no good reason to send those files to me as a 3D PDF other than for viewing only (I prefer eDrawing).

Update: It seems that the files where originally created by AutoCAD Inventor 11 which of course cannot be imported into SolidWorks or Pro-E.
