"Save As" 3D PDF...model looks too dark

I'm using SolidWorks2012.


I have a SolidWorks assembly that I wish to generate a 3D PDF from.  To generate the PDF I use "save as", select PDF as the filetype and then check the box create as 3D PDF file.  The file that is generated works fine  but the overall lighting level of the PDF is too dark.


I looked in the forum and tried adjusting the viewing options in Adobe Acrobat  (I have version 10 Pro) but it still doesn't look correct.


What management wants is the .jpg coloring & look but as a 3d pdf so it rotate...please see attached to see what I mean.


I'm not very "experienced" in either SolidWorks or Adobe so any insight is greatly appreciated!!
