Exporting to a DWF file

DWF files allow you to publish your drawings so they can be viewed on the Internet using a Web browser. progeCAD exports your drawing to a Design Web Format (.dwf) file, which can be viewed in a Web browser if Autodesk® DWF Viewer is also installed on the computer. DWF Viewer is a free tool from Autodesk®.

You can export your drawing to a 2D DWF file or a 3D DWF file. 2D DWF files have smaller file sizes, but cannot be viewed in three dimensions. 3D DWF files can be viewed in three dimensions using the Autodesk® DWF Viewer, but have larger file sizes.

To export a drawing to a 2D DWF file

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose File > Export To File.
    • Type export, and then press Enter.
  2. In Save As Type, choose Design Web Format (dwf).
  3. Specify the name of the file you want to create.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Choose how you want to export:
    • DWF File Version Choose the DWF file version you want. Version 4.2 exports entities on the Model tab only (no layouts). Version 5.5 exports the current layout only. Version 6.0 exports the current layout or all layouts.
    • DWF File Format Choose the desired file format. Compressed binary files have a smaller file size than uncompressed binary files. ASCII files have the largest file size.
    • Layout to Export Choose whether to export the current layout only, or all layouts in the drawing.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Choose the entity-selection method, and then create a selection set that contains the entities you want to export.
  8. When you have finished selecting entities, press Enter.

To export a drawing to a 3D DWF file

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose File > Export To File.
    • Type export, and then press Enter.
