Can anyone advise me if it is possible to bring a .dwf file into AutoCAD as an image or the like and add lines as some sort of overlay which can then be plotted together. Thank you John Farrer Binfield Draughting Berkshire, U.K

AutoCAD 2005 allows a DWF file to be read in as a background image - it lines it up with the original DWG - so changes resulting from comments from DWF Composer can be incorporated. This exists today. "Rob Bendix" wrote in message news:4215119c$1_1@newsprd01... > Unfortunately not yet, but I heard its being worked on. > I'd like to do that too...

Yes, but that's only the markup data. We currently a not able to bring a DWF into the DWG as a background image. For example, if I only receive a DWF from a consultant, I may want to overlay it in my DWG for a comparison.

Hallo Scott, Can you explain how I can do this as I cannot find any way to read a .dwf in AtoCAD. I use ADT 2005. I want to bring into a blank Autocad file the .dwf and then add building services such as pipework on top. Then I need to be able to print both the .dwf image & the pipework together and also save the complete file.

I had been using Load Markup. Although it is using the image in the DWF to line up with the geometry in the originating DWG, I guess logically it really is only bringing in the markups.
