I'm writing a technical report and i would like to include a pdf document with interactive 3D Objects.

Currently, i'm using

\includepdf[scale=0.9,pages=-, pagecommand={}]{document.pdf}

and it generates a fine output.

But the 3D objectives are no longer interactive, is there way o solve this issue?

BTW, the original document that i want to include was generated using the MDPI journal template and media9 package.


  • Any hints you can i include a pdf with 3d interactive objects in a standard latex report? Mar 10, 2020 at 19:31

This is not possible.

All interactive parts, including hyperref-generated links, get lost on embedding another PDF.

For media9, the inclusion commands (\includemedia..., \mediabutton...) have to be used again in the new document.

    Oh, thank you, Manuel. I haven't thought about this yet.
