So what about inventor 08? what plans are there to dwfx from it?

Scott Sheppard

Thank you for the question. Autodesk Inventor 2008 will not come with the ability to publish a DWFx file. This will be coming in a future release. The free Autodesk Design Review 2008 allows you to open a DWF file and save it as a DWFx file. You can publish a DWF file from Inventor, open it in Autodesk Design Review 2008, and then save it as a DWFx file. You can then send the DWFx file to a Microsoft Vista user, and he can view and print it without installing Autodesk Design Review. A non-Vista user can do the same thing if he has already installed the Microsoft XPS Viewer on his system.


what about a dwfx system printer driver then. This could at least eliminate the need to open a DWF in Design Review.

Scott Sheppard

We considered adding DWFx support to the DWF Writer for 2D, but we ran out of time. This will come in a future release. For the immediate needs, Volker is looking into making a command line utility available that will convert DWF to DWFx.
