McDwiff is an Option for Opening DWF Files on a Macintosh

by Sean O'Hara, AIA, LEED AP on March 27, 2018

We make use of the DWF file format for sending drawings to clients for review or print shops to print. It is a significantly better format for sending drawings than PDF. Not only are the files a fraction of the size, but they are also easier to create. In addition, the DWF format gives our clients the ability to measure and to make notes or mark-ups that they send back to us.

The one glitch has been that it was not readily available for Mac users. There is a solution through third party software, McDwiff. It is a free download for private users and $39 for commercial users.

If you have a PC, you can download the Autodesk version.

Dean talks a little more about the DWF format.
