New Publishing File Formats with Inventor 2009

Everytime I am with a new customer I am asked can we save to a PDF? I use to always say why would you want to with the power a dwf posseses and still do. I think it just comes down to the old saying you can't teach an old dog new tricks.


Two new file formats have been added to Autodesk Inventor: PDF: A Portable Document Format (PDF) creates formatted documents which appear on the monitor or printer as intended. To view a file in PDF format, you need Adobe Reader, a free application distributed by Adobe Systems.

DWFx: A 3D file. The published 2D data can be viewed in IE7 or the Microsoft XPS Viewer. To view the published 3D data, install the free viewer, Autodesk design Review, available from www.autodesk.com/designreview.
