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.
YOU HAVE DONE A GREAT THING WITH YOUR DWF FORMAT, I AM SURE THEAT THE WORLD CAD COMUNITY SHALL REMEMBER THE FALL OF 2007 AS A TURNING POINT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF AUTOCAD AND CAD IN GENERAL WITH DWF. THE SPEED IS AWSOME, I KNOW BECAUSE I HAVE USED CAD SINCE 1985 STARTING WITH ANVIL TO AUTOCAD TO PRO-E TO SOLID WORKS AND THEN BACK TO AUTOCAD. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO LEARNING REVIT AND INVENTOR.
THE COMPANY THAT I AM WORKING FOR DOES MEP AND WE HAVE 50 FOREMEN WITH 50 LAPTOPS ALL SOON TO GET THE DWF VIEWER. I SHALL BE ASKING THE GC'S AND ARCHITECTURAL FIRMS THAT WE DEAL WITH DOWN HERE IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA TO GET WITH IT AND START TO PUBLISH THE DOCUMENTATION IN DWF AS APOSED TO ADOBE PDF. ONE SIMPLE REASON..........WE CAN MEASURE, ANOTHER.....WE CAN MARK-UP.
THE BUILDING INDUSTRY HAS BEEN TRYING TO GO PAPERLESS FOR A WHILE AND DWF SEEMS TO BE A GIANT STEP IN THAT DIRECTION. SOMEONE SHOULD CALCULATE THE AMOUNT ODF CARBON YOU HAVE TAKEN OUT OF THE GREENHOUSE WITH DWF.
I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR FUTURE UPDATES OF THE VIEWER. I AM SURE THAT THE BUGS WILL SOON DISAPEAR AND THAT THE DIMENSIONING TOOLS WILL IMPROVE.
JUST THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THANKS AND I WILL FOLLOW YOUR PROGRESS
27 YEAR DRAFTSMAN/DESIGNER
