Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Outputting sheets to a DWF file, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
In this movie, I'm going to look at exporting to DWF format.…DWF stands for Design Web Format and it's a highly compressed vector based file…format that you can use to deliver essentially digital plots of your files to…outside recipients. It's a great file format to use when you…want to share your data with folks that are outside the firm.…Maybe they need to do review, but they don't want to edit anything.…The DWF file format is a read-only format, but maintains all of the data in the file.…
So, the recipient can still query objects and select objects so, it's a very…powerful file format to use. So I'm here in a file called Export to DWF…and I'm in a Sheet view right now but you can actually export your DWF files from…any view as we'll see here in a moment. So, let's go to the Application menu big…R, go to Export and then right here we'll choose DWF/DWFX.…Now, DWF if the traditional design to web format and the newer version is DWFX.…
Okay so, I'm in the export dialog and at first glance it's only showing me the one…
