The goal is to have that 3D file into Solidworks where I can make and create changes to the 3D as a part or assembly. I’m using Solidworks 2006 SP0. Please assist me, thank you in advance!

Unless Adobe has changed something, you can’t get there from here. I’d suggest double-checking Adobe’s site, just to be sure. Beyond that, you’re out of luck. Security is one of the reasons 3D PDF is used.

To prevent models from being copied. If you need the model to check form and fit in an assy or in a presentation, ask the owners for a copy. Many vendors will issue a dumb or surfaces only model for such purpose. Have you checked the vendors website for download-able models? Exactly, the point of PDF is to prevent what you are trying to do. 1 member likes this post!

It depends on how the file was created and if you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat 3d. You can then export as either IGES, Parasolid, Step or VRML. Note most people believe 2D and 3D PDF’s are uneditable THIS IS INCORRECT, if you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat you can set the security of PDF documents. You are correct to some extent. For Kevin, if depends if the originator made the file secure. If they didn’t, then all Kevin needs is shell out hundreds of dollars for the Pro version of Acrobat 3D to do what he wants. Or, the custom can set an unsecured version too.
