Over the last week, Adobe came out with a rather significant announcement. For around $1,000, you can purchase Adobe software that integrates 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) into Adobe Acrobat documents. Although you need to purchase Adobe Acrobat 3D, the software that allows you to put CAD designs into the Acrobat document, others can view the design for free as long as they have the free Acrobat reader. This will not only change the CAD industry, but will likely spill over into the DCC market, and will have significant impacts there.
