3D PDF... from Navisworks

Intratech (a Korean company (so don't be weirded out if you go to their site and it's mostly in Korean)) has announced the release of their Eagle 3D PDF exporter for Navisworks.

This neat little Plug-in allows you to export small areas of your model to .pdf format.  You can even export all of your "clashes" to 3D .pdf. 

From their site:

3D 공간을 문서화 하는 기술 !

3PDF는 무료 어도비 리더로 3D 모델에 대한 설계 검토를 할 수 있도록 하여 줍니다.  3D PDF는 항공부문과 제조업에서 기업간 협업과 3D 기술문서화, 협업 수단으로 사용되고 있으나  건설, 플랜트, 조선과 같은 중후장대 산업군에서는 모델이 크므로 뷰잉 성능이 낮아  잘 사용되지 않고 있습니다.  인트라네크는 이러한 성능 문제를 해결하여  무료 어도비 리더의 잇점을 활용할 수 있도록  Eagle 3D PDF Exporter를 개발하였습니다.
Translated using Babylon.com:
3 D space technology document! 3 PDF is free Adobe Reader 3 D model for the review the Designed to allow. 3 D PDF aviation sector and the manufacturing industry-business collaboration and 3 D document technology, collaboration tool, and use, but construction, plant, such as the pole of the industry after the model since there is a high-performance in view, well is not used. In a Alelanesia these performance troubleshooter free Adobe Reader's benefits you can take advantage of Eagle to 3 D PDF Exporter development.
I think it loses something in the translation.

If you're adventurous, give it a try. Free 14 day trial 

The only complaint I have so far is that the Y and Z axis seemed swapped in my PDFs.  I've had the similar problems before when I start a .nwd from a .dwf exported from Revit.  Anybody have ideas about that one?

Intartech- not afraid of the International Big Bad BIM

PS the Linked In conversation about the launch mentioned a discounted rate to non-Korean buyers until they get a marketing partner.  Sounds like opportunity on both fronts.
