The Autodesk DWF Viewer is free. Autodesk DWF Composer is $199. One of the
differences is that Autodesk DWF Composer lets you markup and measure a DWF.
It also includes a DWG Viewer, the DWF Writer, and Inventor View (views
Autodesk Inventor files).
For 2D measurement, Autodesk DWF Composer provides a length tool, a polyline
tool, and an area tool.
a) The length tool measures the distance between two points. Because
DWF files retain the intelligence of the original design, measurements can
be taken by snapping to appropriate shapes.
b) The polyline tool measures the cumulative length of multiple
polyline segments, including rectangles.
c) The area tool measures the area of a polygon or rectangle.
For 3D, Autodesk DWF Composer can measure:
a) distances between points, edges, center points, or any combination
b) angles between edges, and
c) radii of circles and arcs.

Is there a way to make distance measurements in DWF? Edrawings can - my
client says - I'm trying to get him to use this instead.
Thanks - I was hoping I could provide my client with DWF viewer and he could make measurements on DWF files I provide to him without the expense of his having to purchase another program. They prefer EDRAWINGS from the guys they use who work in Solidworks. I am trying to convince them Mechanical Desktop is far superior. right now it is only superior for me, doing the design and drafting, but not necessarily for them because they can't query the DWF files.
