I'm not sure if I understand the question. Could you explain what you are trying to achieve?

Good question. I'm not sure that there are any apps that stand alone for this from ADSK and I'm sure that Max can't do it directly.

I had a similar issue recently. I ended up buying a plugin called Tetra4. Complete waste of money. The 3D PDFs were huge and the quality was very poor. I compared the scene exported from MicroStation to 3D PDF. The 3D PDF exported from MicroStation was 8mb. The same scene exported from Max using Tetra4D was 110mb.

 

I eventually abandoned the idea of 3D PDF and talked my client into an animation. One other option is a series of panaramic images. You can put them into a product called Pano2VR. You can link the panoramic images by placing hot spots into the pano2vr. You won't have a 3D PDF but you can create a HTML 5, quicktime or flash ouput. The advantage of this is you will have a very good quality product because your rendering out og Max using yor render engine of choice.

 

If anybody has found a good quality 3D PDF solution it would be good to know. For now from my experience even though its possible but its not a viable solution

You can try the SimLab PDF Exporter for 3ds Max. You can publish the materials and there is a setting for the bitmap resolution; the files don't get too big as well.

Simlab is not able to export animations. Is there any other solution than this?

Hi. Are you sure the 3D PDF format does support animations? I've never seen that, nor heard about it, but maybe I'm wrong?

SAP visual enterprise can output 3D PDF's. I can also do it with Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Exteneded.
