I want to add a part in PDF... Open up the file which goes to Solid Edge Viewer. (which does not open) Is this the way to add a part, or is there a different way? 

Thank You

Can you please explain your question a little more? Are you asking how to use a 3D PDF in Solid Edge or how to create a 3D PDF, or something totally different?

Thanks,

Sorry, but your question is not clear. Do you:

 

1. Have a part in PDF format you want to try to add to a Solid Edge assembly? or

2. Are you trying to get a Part from Solid Edge output as a 3D PDF?

I do not have 3D Adobe Reader. To answer your question a little better.
What I have is 5 documents in Adobe Reader which require some added parts.
I tried to add the parts in a standard format but, can't.
So I opened Local C: found the file. Right click for Solid Edge Viewer
failed document.
I wanted to send you a video no go.
Thank You

So you have documents that have the extension of PDF?
You do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader?

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to see the files and will have to model them by hand. Solid Edge does not read in PDF files.

Crousie,   Assuming the 3D PDF file was created by you......

Crousie,

 

Assuming the 3D PDF file was created by you.....you'll need to edit your Solid Edge file to how you want it, then re-save, the part [or assembly] as an PDF, overwriting the existing one.

 

The SE viewer is a different thing all together, & regular [free] Adobe Acrobat Reader will open 3D PDF files just fine....which is kind of the point.

I have Adobe Reader XI. Is this the same animal as Adobe Acrobat Reader?
Not sure!

Thank You
