If you're just looking to generate a 3d PDF and not attempting to create physical models with a 3d printer, there's probably a checkbox somewhere that needs checked. I'm unfamiliar with AutoCAD, but in Solidworks we simply do 'save as'>pdf> and click the 'save as 3d pdf' check box. Otherwise it just saves a 2d image.
