Agreed! Importing articulating 3d for print is beyond overkill.
However, you do have the ability to produce the appropriate bitmap of the
appropriate rotation and view without going back to the modeling program &
exporting from there.

Yes, it does work that way. And the PDF's ability to rotate the image
and do neat CAD things is lots of fun.
However, the size of the PDF becomes gigantic. Several of them in a
file can overwhelm an average PC's memory.
And it's way overkill for simply printing to hard copy...
But it is neat technology.
