David makes a great observation about the way this is being used today. At more than one conference, I've seen people use 3D PDF as a means to present concepts, ideas, etc. because of its lightweight footprint but capable functionality. In many cases these are individual users who acquired the product on their own (as opposed to corporate-wide implementations) because its inexpensive, easy to use, fits a variety of needs, and is highly functional. Its a bit like knowing how many use Powerpoint for a particular purpose - not really possible.

One elaboration on David's comments - the ability to comment or markup doesn't require Acrobat; it can be done with Reader, provided the author as enabled something in the PDF called Reader Extensions. This again is a HUGE benefit - if I want someone to have the ability to comment, but not the ability to measure, I simply enable that configuation in Acrobat as part of the publishing. This gives the author control over what features the recipient has access to.

While every company might have their own solution for PLM, Aras Innovator 10 intends to make PLM easier for all company sizes through its customization. The program is also not resource intensive, which allows it to be appropriated for any use. Some have even linked it to the Raspberry Pi.
solidThinking updated its Inspire program with a multitude of features to expedite the conception and prototype process. The latest version lets users blend design with engineering and manufacturing constraints to produce the cheapest, most efficient design before production.
XYZ, Rabbit, and Disney innovate on the 3d printer in different ways -- from price point to using materials such as yarn.
MIT students modified a 3D printer to enable it to print more than one object and print on top of existing printed objects. All of this was made possible by modifying a Solidoodle with a height measuring laser.
Siemens released Intosite, a cloud-based, location-aware SaaS app that lets users navigate a virtual production facility in much of the same fashion as traversing through Google Earth. Users can access PLM, IT, and other pertinent information for specific points on a factory floor or at an outdoor location.
