Chapter 25. Publishing on the Web > Viewing DWF Files with WHIP!

Viewing DWF Files with WHIP!

DWG has limitations that reduce its usefulness as an Internet-based design collaboration medium. To overcome this limitation, AutoCAD 2000 supports generation of DWF files. In this section, we will study WHIP!, Autodesk’s DWF Web browser viewing tool. Again, remember that DWF does not replace DWG files.

The WHIP! Browser Tool

The WHIP! plug-in and ActiveX control are Autodesk’s Internet tools for viewing DWF files on your Web browser. WHIP! Release 4 is written to the Win32 API specification, which means that the plug-in and control support the Windows 95 and Windows NT operating systems only. Support of other platforms has not been readily forthcoming from Autodesk. However, Autodesk does offer a developer’s toolkit that enables independent developers to port the plug-in to other platforms.
