Abstract

Sharing 3D models with embedded annotations and additional information in a general accessible way still is a major challange. Using 3D technologies must become much easier, in particular in areas such as Cultural Heritage, where archeologists, art historians, and museum curators rely on robust, easy to use solutions. Sustainable exchange standards are vital since unlike in industry, no sophisticated PLM or PDM solutions are common in CH. To solve this problem we have examined the PDF file format and developed concepts and software for the exchange of annotated 3D models in a way that is not just comfortable but also sustainable. We show typical use cases for authoring and using PDF documents containing annotated 3D geometry. The resulting workflow is eficient and suitable for experienced users as well as for users working only with standard word processing tools and e-mail clients (plus, currently, Acrobat Pro Extended).
