Autodesk Inc. is working with Bluebeam Software
to provide additional file sharing options to designers and
engineers that use AutoCAD(R) software. The companies are
developing joint solutions that enable AutoCAD users to more
easily convert complicated, large-format AutoCAD drawings
into Autodesk(R) DWF(TM) (Design Web Format(TM)) digital
Bluebeam will enhance its Bluebeam Pushbutton Plus
software to allow conversion to DWF, a published format
developed by Autodesk for sharing 2D and 3D design and
"By working with Bluebeam, Autodesk customers will have
access to new DWF solutions, which were created specifically
for the CAD industry, making it easier for architects and
engineers to create, manage and share their AutoCAD drawings
with clients, contractors, coworkers and reprographers,"
says Tony Peach, director of product marketing for Autodesk
"Bluebeam's Pushbutton Plus solution currently gives
users the ability to convert their drawings and documents to
seven different formats -- it makes sense for us to also
include the DWF format," says Richard Lee, President and CEO
of Bluebeam Software.
In addition to allowing users to output to DWF,
Bluebeam will also be working with AutoCAD to create
specialized technology that will enable AutoCAD users to
convert large quantities of digital drawings to DWF in a
single batch. Bluebeam plans to launch a product that
includes DWF capability in the first quarter of 2005.
