Hi guys. I've been slowing learning my way around SoftPlan for the past few months coming from a Autodesk background. Is there a way I can generate PDF model in 3D so that I can send to a client so they can rotate and slice through the model? I've attached a sample PDF of what I was able to generate using Autodesk Revit. Thanks

Did you try to open it with a PDF software or with a the browser? The browser doesn't play well with 3D PDF's

I was impressed by it back in 2015 when I started using it. I figured it was a great way to send models to people who didn't have CAD software.

I don't believe Softplan can generate a 3D PDF.

 

Have you tried generating a 3D model with review, and having clients download the FREE Softplan viewer?

Or use the SketchUp export and send the model that way. If you have SketchUp you can create scenes with sections, views, etc. If not, you still can send the SketchUp model and they can use their free viewer to look around in 3D.
