Overview of Publishing to DWF
Concept Procedure

DWF (Design Web Format™) is an open, secure file format developed by Autodesk for sharing engineering design data. DWF files are highly compressed, so they are small and fast to transmit and view.

DWF files are useful for the following:

All layers and styles are published, with no loss of information. If you have joined data to layers in your map, the joined data is published. You can include graphical elements, including any draped raster files. You can include attribute data.

If your map has a coordinate system assigned to it, AutoCAD Map 3D includes that coordinate system for each sheet in the published DWF file.
