Does Solidworks 2008 require a plug-in in order to save as a 3D PDF? I can save it as a PDF, but I do not get the checkbox to save as a 3d file.
I don't think they added support for 3D PDF until 2010.
That is quite possible. The 3d checkbox option is not available to me. I am pushing the company to upgrade to 2015, but that is harder than it should be... budgets, you know.
If it is possible, there's probably a small check box toward the bottom of the dialog box which states something to the effect of "save 3d info". Just choose "save as" and "pdf" to check it. There is no separate "save as 3D PDF".
I don't have that checkbox option in this version of Solidworks. I can save as a PDF, but the 3D option isn't there.
Thanks for your input
I think it was not possible in SOLIDWORKS 2008. But there is a plug-in compatible with SOLIDWORKS 2008 which can do that: http://www.datakit.com/cad-convertors/solidworks-3d-to-pdf-3d/1978-solidworks-3d-to-pdf-3d.html
