Q - question

Publish 3D DWF files from CAD applications.

A - answer You can directly publish 3D CAD models to the 3D version of the DWF publishing format from these applications: AutoCAD (2006+), Architectural Desktop (2005+), Inventor (9+), Revit (8+), Autodesk VIZ (2006+), 3ds max (8+), SolidWorks 2005, Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 and from other 3D CAD programs (Catia, Solid Edge, UGS NX, Microstation V8, ESRI ArcGIS 9, OpenGL compatible apps...).

For publishing from non-Autodesk applications you can use free utilities "Autodesk DWF Writer for 3D", "Autodesk DWF Writer for SolidWorks" and "Autodesk DWF Writer for Pro/ENGINEER".

You can find download links to these applications e.g. on Download. See for more information about the DWF format.
