Convert DWF to PDF

Design Web Format (DWF) represents 2D/3D drawing in compressed format for viewing, reviewing, or printing design files. It contains graphics and text as part of design data and reduces the size of the file due to its compressed format. The reduced file size makes the distribution and communication of rich design data efficient. DWF doesn’t require the recipient to know about the usage of CAD software that created the original drawing.
