This document specifies how to extend the ISO 32000-2 specification by adding the ISO 10303-242 (STEP AP 242) format as a valid format for 3D assets contained in a RichMedia annotation. It is intended for:
— developers of software that creates PDF files (PDF writers);
— software that reads existing PDF files and usually interprets their contents for display (PDF readers);
— software that reads and displays PDF content and interacts with the computer users to possibly modify and save the PDF file (PDF processors);
— PDF products that read and/or write PDF files for a variety of other purposes (PDF processors).
Note PDF writers and PDF readers are more specialised classifications of PDF processors.
This document does not specify the following:
— specific processes for converting paper or electronic documents to the PDF file format;
— specific technical design, user interface implementation, or operational details of rendering;
— specific physical methods of storing these documents such as media and storage conditions;
— methods for validating the conformance of PDF files or PDF processors;
— required computer hardware and/or operating system.
