Attach DWF’s and PDF’s in AutoCAD 2007?

March 7th, 2006 Comments off

Mark Douglas has a nice post on the the new DWF attach feature in AutoCAD 2007. It allows 2D DWF’s to be attached, like xrefs, for use as a background. He also details a clever workaround to use this feature to attach PDF files if that is all you can obtain.

I tested the accuracy of DWF attach by inserting DWF’s back into their source file and was impressed. Of course, it will depend on the precision used when the DWF is generated. See below for links to earlier posts on how to control, & the impact of increasing, DWF precision.

In the Dynamic Interface: AutoCAD 2007 -DWF Attach….Ohh YEAH!!
