Communicate. Collaborate. Keep projects on track.


Architecture, Engineering, and Construction companies are constantly being challenged by rising construction costs, fast-track schedules, growing documentation requirements, and project teams located around the world. To succeed in this fast-paced and competitive environment, AEC firms require an accurate and efficient way to exchange 2D designs, 3D models, specifications, contracts, and other project information. Securing and protecting this data, while sharing it with various stakeholders is now a requirement of doing business in a timely and cost effective work-flow.

However, the multitude of systems, file formats, and document sets prevent many AEC firms from collaborating efficiently. This happens throughout a project life-cycle including when they are reviewing designs, managing proposal requests, or processing change orders. Many project teams continue to use time-consuming paper-based processes and inefficient work around solutions that drive up costs, increase errors, and result in project delays.

The 3DA solution for AEC leverages Acrobat® 3D technology, and the ubiquitous Adobe® Reader® to bring people together with the information they need. The 3DA Suite for AEC was created to help AEC firms keep projects on track, on schedule, and on budget.

Reviewing complex 3D designs can now be done on any computer with full 3D models that are fully navigable in Adobe® Reader®. This suite helps teams quickly share any part of their model with any stakeholder, tightening feedback loops, resulting in more efficient work-flows.

Integrate 3D PDFs into your existing workflow and help your team:

  • Securely share 2D/3D drawings and project information
  • Combine files from multiple applications into an Adobe PDF file for easy distribution and archiving
  • Streamline collaborative workflows throughout the entire project life-cycle
  • Collect and exchange data using interactive forms
  • Protect designs and confidential information from unauthorized access
