This blog highlights how applications built around DWF can do more than what can be done just using paper. The blog covers the building (architectural/electrical/construction), manufacturing, and infrastructure (e.g., GIS, telecommunications) industries.
AutoCAD DWF PUBLISH: Please do not rename DWF6 ePlot.pc3
When used in conjunction with the Sheet Set Manager, the PUBLISH command is a powerful means for one-click DWF file generation.
The PUBLISH command takes the settings from various PC3 files, such as page sizes, and uses that information to generate a multisheet DWF. To ensure compatibility across applications, this process uses the same DWF Toolkit that is supplied to Autodesk DWF Partners. The attributes of the DWF file itself are derived from the DWF6 ePlot PC3 file. In this regard, the PUBLISH command from the Sheet Set Manager combines settings from both types of PC3 files. This provides the ability for AutoCAD users to set up PLOTS for specific devices but then generate DWF files that can be subsequently printed to those devices with the same results.
The PUBLISH command specifically looks for the DWF6 ePlot PC3 file to perform its operations. So please do not rename this file.
