PDF compared with DWF/DWFx

The PDF file format is also widely used to transmit drawing information over the Internet. The following are some significant factors to consider when choosing between PDF and DWF/DWFx:

  • PDF files can be viewed across several platforms, and are supported by many viewing and editing tools.
  • PDF drawings are limited to lines, cubic Bézier curves, fills, TrueType text, colors, and layers. Support for CAD specific design data is limited. Many use PDF to avoid allowing their DWG files to get redistributed.
  • DWF/DWFx was specifically designed with the digital design process in mind. Hence, DWF/DWFx lends itself to the design review process better than PDF.
