I just hope I am just seeing the option, but is there anyway to publish to DWF and not to buzzsaw?

 

I can <print> to pdf, but I rather use DWF.

 

John.

You could grab the Autodesk DWF Writer (Windows system printer driver) and use that with the Print dialog.

unfortunatly all it does is make 0 kb files.

 

Personally I think it kind of silly, that I have to download a program to print/publish in dwf when everything else that I have from autocad does it natively.

 

and the 32-bit program of course does not install since I have a 64 bit machine.

Hi. Just a suggestion. You can simply export to DWF using the export option in the application menu. You will end up with one DWF file for the entire project.

Ok that worked.  Still odd that you cannot publish to dwf.   But a solution!

No no yours was a great suggestion, and It should have worked!    There may be underlining problems to why it didn't.
