    Hello, Sharing model with client has always been a weak link, although options in version 4 to export to iv or dxf have helped a great deal. I would suggest, however, an option to export to x3d format be considered in future to facilitate distribution of models to clients.

    Thank you Andrew for your answer. The program I am using is PDF3D Report Gen (http://www.pdf3d.com/). I will try with the Isosurfaces see what kind of results I can get.

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your issue. First, I would like to know what program you are using to create the 3D PDFs, I would like to pass this information on to some of our users. Second, in the images below it looks like there is a VolRender that is not displaying, is that correct? If so, VolRenders do not export to IV format, so this is why you are not seeing it in the 3D PDF. A VolRender does not contain any primitives that can be exported to DXF or IV. You can verify this by importing the IV into an empty project. The only recommendation I can give you is to use a series of Isosurfaces instead of the VolRender. This will not create the same display, but can achieve some pretty good results.

    I hope this helps!

    TonyMak,

    Thank you for posting your request, I have added a vote to our suggestion file for future versions of Voxler to support 3D PDF export. I have tried PDF3D and it does work very well with Voxler. If this is a feature that you need soon, I would recommend taking a look at PDF3D ReportGen.

    Thanks!
