The paper presents the authors’ experience with including interactive 3D objects into PDF documents, starting with modifying 3D graphics in Maple, followed by its export into the VRML format, then its conversion to U3D with the use of Deep Exploration, and finishing with its embedding into a PDF document by means of pdfTEX and the movie15 package. This procedure preserves the possibility of the user’s interaction with 3D objects even in the final PDF document without the necessity of the local installation of Maple or other graphical programs.
