DWF on mac

Is this the only free option for dwf viewing on pure mac os?

http://freewheel.autodesk.com

 

(http://www.edrawingsviewer.com/MAC_Viewer.html correction: this software doesn't open dwf, only dwg)

 

Seems that even autocad for mac doesn't read dwf.

 

Thanks for any feedback.

 

That's one.

http://cloud.autodesk.com is another I believe (subscription users get more features).

And for iOS mobile devices Autodesk Design Review FREE: http://t.co/77XjAquz

 

AutoCADWS for MAC is free as a DWG viewer, markup, and editor: grab it from the Apple Store.

 

But free and low cost PDF markup are very prevalent now, plus AutoCAD can attach PDFs, IMHO DWF's use is fading.

I guess you can't measure on pdf and they do weight a little more than dwf, IMHO.

 

Added to this, on our LA it's mandatory that all projects are submitted on digitally signed dwf, which makes it of need for me.

 

Any more options for mac? Isn't it stupid that there is a free app for iOS devices and none for OSx?

Makes me question the viability of committing to DWF to date.

...same situation here. What DWF tool is out there for my Mac users? I found McDwiff: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mcdwiff/id403112267?mt=12

Anyone who has feedback on it?

Nothing has changed since the second reply in this thread above your post.

Apparently now Autocad WS can do something with dwf:

Haven't given it a shot yet, though...
