This review explores the many impressive capabilities of the new version of Acrobat that are relevant to AEC, including the ability to combine multiple file formats in a single PDF portfolio, enhanced review capabilities with the ability to synchronize document views, ability to embed and play video within PDF, improvements in batch processing of AutoCAD files, and IFC import capabilities that provide support for BIM workflows.

  1. I use Sketchup Pro 6 with Maxwell Render 1.7 Plug-in Version. Would I be able to use these with Acrobat 9 Pro Extended to easily collaborate with customers that have Adobe Reader 9?

    If not, will this be offered at a later date?

    Thanks, Ben Mann, RDI

  2. IFC support in acrobat is a most welcome addition, however your review doesn’t appear to point out that this a ‘windows only’ feature: Acrobat 9 Pro Extended is not available for Mac OSX.

  3. A really clear, detailed review – thanks!

    Ben – the IFC information (model tree) is viewable and interactive in Adobe Reader on the Mac. However the 3D conversion capabilities are PC only (for historical reasons relating to the Right Hemisphere software component, I heard)
