On July 4, 2006, we unleashed Project Freewheel to the world. You guys loved it right away. The ability to view DWF files without the need to install additional software was welcome news to customers whose IT departments were persnickety when it came to installing software. In addition, Project Freewheel allowed your design data to reach places it had typically not gone before - the Macintosh or the Linux worlds. People like Shaan Hurley even used Project Freewheel on his cell phone.
The only problem with Project Freewheel was the "project" aspect of it. Some of you expressed a concern that you would be basing your design sharing on someone's science project. We have remedied that situation. Project Freewheel (http://freewheel.labs.autodesk.com) will continue to exist as we continue to develop it on Autodesk Labs. Independent from this, we have released Autodesk Freewheel (http://freewheel.autodesk.com) on a separate set of servers monitored by our IT Operations team who ensure proper up time for Autodesk Buzzsaw and Autodesk Streamline. So please use Autodesk Freewheel with confidence.
P.S. I believe the flash animation on http://freewheel.autodesk.com is trying to hypnotize me.
