That is pretty sweet.

That's a pretty steep price tag for Acrobat 3D, but man... that is neat.

what PDF printer or setting would i set so u don't get prompted for file names when doing Publishes ?


and a blast from the past, does anybody remember the days of postscript printer driver EPS file printing?  or virtual HPGL Plt file printing,   does anybody still used these techniques for reprographics?    maybe i am just spoiled by in house OCE

Giveaway of the Day - Adolix PDF Converter PRO

I'm not sure if it's 100% accurate, but this comment from the site might indicate it wouldn't be particularly useful for CAD work:

Quote
It includes a line of text to the bottom of each page of the created pdf: “Create PDF-files without this message by purchasing novaPDF printer (http://www.novapf.com).

So I do not consider this a fair giveaway, even if it works perfectly.

WOW, yea after reading a number of comments (I had previously only read the first dozen or so) this thing appears to be a steaming pile.

Sorry for the link!  Took it for face value... appears to be something to avoid, actually, as a freebie...may be worth it if you purchase the novapdf driver or something, I don't know... but oh well... at least you can get the freebie version to try it out and then see if the purchase version is worth buying.

I installed Adolix PDF Converter PRO, but it was gone again after 30 seconds.  :-(  The experience wasnt very good.
