Autodesk Freewheel and DWF fun !

Thanks to for posting this tutorial on their site.
Below I've embedded 4 DWF exports from REVIT 2008 using the cool 'FREE'

Autodesk Freewheel technology.

The first Freewheel viewer displays a linked 2d DWF exported from REVIT MEP and the second viewer shows a 3D DWF linked from a REVIT Architecture export.

It's weird.....once you hover your mouse over the viewer(s) below you can (and will) :
- use the wheel button on your mouse to zoom in and out.
- dynamicly pan by pressing the wheel button

You can also combine this with the zoom and pan tools provided on the menu bar. Then you can further use your regular left mouse button in combination with the menu bar tools.

I would just like to change the zoom increment.

Lastly on the upper right you may see additional dwf pages.

How fun is this !

Below is a 3D DWF file. You can use the 'Orbit' tool !

This one seems to go a little 'wonkie' at times.
Orbit TIP: When using the 'orbit' tool, start by resticting your mouse movement to only horizontal and vertical, starting the movement from the center of the circle. . . . .got the hang of it . . . . . ok now click your mouse outside the circle (cursor changes) move around the outside of the circle. Now you are rotating about the viewing axis. That's it, rock and roll.

This is simple to do and could very easily be applied in so many ways my head is spinning (no pun intended).

Below is a sample 3D DWF of sanitary waste piping.

Below is a sample 3D DWF of an HVAC Pimary and Secondary Supply Air System.

A message to the Google humans and the Google Robots > Unlock my blog !

I have started to post Videos on You Tube. Search for 'CADclip'.

Every Monday I send the same stupid reply message to Google after they send me the same stupid automated apology on behalf of the Google Robots for locking down my blog. It's been 9 weeks since REVIT ROCKS has been locked down wothout warning.

I will get back into blogging as I own anyway but with a different 'non-free' provider that is FOR SURE.

In the mean time if anyone is reading this I have started to post Videos on You Tube. Search for 'CADclip'.

Google Blogger sucks !
