Sorry ,maybe this question should not post to  this forum .and I am lack of experience and limited capability.


First, have a look at the attached DWF file .

It was  downloaded  from BEYOND THE PAPER site.


Open it in the autocad design review and click on some 3d object , object  properties would show . as :


Author,                     garding

Designer,                  garding

Manufacturer,           Standard

Part Number,             Fork-Brace

Part Type name,        Modeling



Accuracy,                Low

Area:,                       34.686 inch^2

Material:                    ,Default

Volume:                    4.642 inch^3


How to set such properties to 3d object ?

I found those objects are not block .  

When I click some object in autocade 2009 , I find only these properties : general \geometric figure\3d  Effect.


Thank advance .

"That model was done in Autodesk Inventor - not AutoCAD. You can get some massprop information in AutoCAD, but not as much as in Inventor. If the author had actually assigned material (like steel) rather than leaving as default - there would be additional information."


thank you !JDMather  Contributor

Thank you for your questions.

In Inventor, select a part, right click mouse, and select “iProperties…” in the pop-up part iProperties dialog, we can set the properties, which will publish to DWF file as object properties.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
