I am using WF5 M060 and I have an assembly that I want to create a 3D pdf of but so far, no good After attenpting to create it, I get the system message "PDF file has been aborted". It's not that large of a model but it includes a bit of cabling and a couple of exploded views. Are either of these a problem for pdf generation? I have successfully created 3D pdf 's but something strange is afoot with this one.

I answered my own question and got it to work. It wasn't the cabling or exploded views that caused the failure but it was some swept surface features that I had in the model. I converted those to solid geometry and the pdf created brilliantly

No surfaces in a 3D PDF? Interesting. I'd think it would just omit them - like when converting to STL.

Display Style Helped
I too had the same issue. In the message area(Status bar) I got a messge saying that try to reduce the size. I changed the display style from "shading with reflections" to "shading" or "shading with edges". In both this style I am able to create 3d pdf.
