Topic: Anyone got AutoCad PDF samples?

Trying to explain to a client about AutoCad PDFs (with layers, e.g. plans of house, mech eng) and can I find a .pdf sample anywhere?

Well certainly not on the AutoCad site - they have a big splash saying "Why (our format) beats PDF hands down..." Bizarre (and they don't provide examples to back up their claims either).

You know, I really do feel this is indicative of the lack of joined up thinking at Adobe sometimes. Software engineers spend ages dreaming up stuff like layers and the AutoCad functionality, and then... nobody can be bothered to actually put a darn sample file on the site to demonstrate it.

Anyways, if anyone has any samples it would be very useful!
