The DWF Toolkit makes application development possible for Autodesk partners.
Autodesk is a Microsoft technology partner. The Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation provides a foundation for building applications and high fidelity experiences in Microsoft Windows Vista, blending together application UI, documents, and media content, while exploiting the full power of your computer.
InterKnowlogy is also a Microsoft technology partner. Leveraging the technology of the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), InterKnowlogy built a 3D Collaborator for AutoCAD© Drawings. It allows you to annotate on the 2D or 3D surface of AutoCAD Drawings that have been published as DWF. 3D Collaborator is another example of an independent use of the free Autodesk DWF Toolkit. Although the download includes some prewired sample DWF files, InterKnowlogy updated 3D Collaborator this month to make opening your own DWF files easier.
Please take 3D Collaborator for a spin with your own DWF files and tell us what you think. In this age of ever expanding bandwidth, does size matter? How is the speed? How would you like to see the metadata presented? You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts or simply post a comment on this blog page. Your comments are welcome.
