transparent surface problem

I am trying to upload an assembly includes a cylinder that I have extruded in Inventor. The surface of this cylinder is Polycarbonate (clear), so the parts inside it may be visible. When I save this assembly as a .dwf file and view it with Autodesk Design Review, I am able to view the clear surface and everything inside it perfectly. However, when I open it with Autodesk Freewheel, only 1/4 of the transparent cylinder shows up. Any ideas? Thanks.

Please provide the DWF as a test case.

No need to upload, I have reproduced the problem.
