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.
This blog is on hiatus. It will remain here as a repository of information regarding DWF files and what can be done with them besides printing. If you have DWF file or Autodesk Design Review related questions, you can continue to post them to our discussion group or email them to us.
Our partners over at Autodesk Labs want to let you know that Autodesk customers can sign up for the Project Blink Beta. Project Blink provides you with the ability to access your design software from anywhere.
Interested? Limited number of slots available! Just take this quick survey!
Support for DWF/DWFx files published by AutoCAD 2012 and other 2012 Autodesk design programs
DWF Toolkit building with VS2010
DWF Toolkit building on Mac (XCode 4.1) and Linux (gcc 4.5)
Updated sample code and documentation
New parameter "nProviderFlags" to the existing functions “DWFContent::load”, “DWFSection::getContentDefinition” and “DWFSection:: getObjectDefinition”, which will give you an option to skip reading customized property attributes, improving file reading performance. (The default behavior is not skipping which is consistent with the toolkit previous version.)
The ability for others to add value to what DWF has to offer is another way DWF goes beyond the paper.
We recently launched our public Beta for Autodesk Design Review 2013 and highly recommend our customers join us in the Autodesk Design Review 2013 Beta program.
