"Hi Rich - I started eliminating some of the more complex entities in my model like roof tile details and finally got it to export to a useable 3D PDF with edges.  Maybe the models are just too big or complicated... Thank you for your help, John"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena@yahoo.com.hk ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Frank.
