What is DWF

Drawing Web Format

DWF, or Design Web Format, is a file format developed by Autodesk for the distribution of drawing files to anyone who needs to view, review, or print design files. DWF files are highly compressed and are usually smaller and faster to transmit than the original design files. Original design files, for example AutoCAD DWG, may depend on external resources as referenced drawings, plot styles and fonts. The DWF file will contain all information that are needed for displaying the design correctly.


You will find more information about the DWF format on Wikipedia.


Files in DWF format usually end with a .dwf or a .dwfx extension.
