Joe Mooring of PLP included a DWF-related item in the latest PLP newsletter.
Autodesk® DWF™ Writer - The New Universal Driver?
One of the many challenges we encounter in the wide-format AEC world is the selection of a single Windows print driver that will function properly regardless of the application from which you are printing. For example, while a particular HP Designjet driver may produce excellent HP-GL/2 files from AutoCAD, the same driver may produce unacceptable output from Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Project, or Bentley MicroStation. The undesirable effects of driver incompatibility may include incorrect scaling, incorrect image placement, incorrect paper selection, missing data, missing images, and in some case stray vectors or "digital garbage."
Several PLP customers are now using the Autodesk® DWF™ Writer as their universal driver. This free download from Autodesk quickly creates a Windows printer that allows you to create a DWF file from any Windows application. If you are using PlotWorks to control your wide-format device, the output from the Autodesk DWF Writer may be redirected through a PlotWorks Print-to-Queue port directly to the print queue.
