Earlier this week I traveled up to Ottawa to visit one of our Canadian Government customers. I’m always amazed at how so many people thrive in such cold climates!! Temperature on arrival was reported to be -11 degrees. I wondered, is that C or F? Lucky for me it was C.
During our meeting the discussion moved to DWF and the group was under the impression that DWF was a proprietary Autodesk format. I run into this misconception often – it’s easy to see why because DWF does come from Autodesk but it’s actually an open platform.
Autodesk created DWF as an open standard based on technology that any developer can access free of charge. You can visit the Autodesk DWF page for more information. Also be sure to check out Scott Sheppard’s blog: Beyond the Paper for daily updates on how customers are taking advantage of this popular and powerful platform.
