Adobe Systems buys out Trade and Technologies France -- we know them as TTF of Lyons, France. They make 3D MCAD translators, and so Adobe plans to add TTF translators to Adobe software. I am guessing Acrobat, in particular.
Unti recentlyl, I have found Adobe's efforts towards CAD somewhat weak. Last year's Acrobat Pro with 3D was a disaster -- no translator included! This year, v7.0.7 adds the U3D translator, but now Adobe goes full-strength so that the Fords and Boeings of big industry can view NX and Catia drawings in Acrobat. Adobe makes its money from the PDF servers, not the freebee viewer that you and I download.
+ CAD libraries for reading and writing CAD/CAM/CAE files in native formats,
