3D DWF from Civil 3D Surface...

I have a 3D DWF published from a Civil 3D (2008) TIN surface. It works fine in ADR2009, but I'm trying to view it in Freewheel and it just shows a bank screen.

I have tried both versions of Freewheel (Autodesk and Project), I've tried uploading from my PC to the server, and linking to the DWF on my webserver, but each time I just get a blank screen.

If I click on the down arrow at the top right of the Freewheel window, the drop down box shows the correct DWF title, so it has loaded, it just isn't displaying anything. (Zoom fit was the first thing I tried BTW).

Any ideas?

Please send me the DWF. I would love to see what's going on.

Thank you for this sample file. There is definitely something amiss here.



1. When I tried to convert the DWF file to ASCII so I could look at it
with a text editor to see what type of geometry was in it, I got an error in
our DWF Toolkit.

2. It is true that Autodesk Design Review can load this DWF; however,
as soon as I orbit, the geometry flies off the screen. The center for this
model is way off. I think Freewheel may be placing the center of the model
at the center of the screen which is why the screen appears blank. Perhaps
Autodesk Design Review is computing a bounding box of the geometry and
centering on that?




We will investigate why Autodesk Design Review and Freewheel behave
differently.
