RV: ACAD Protection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think that DWG Files can´t lock it.

I´m looking a format that let me send drawings and calculation, but can´t be
modified by other.

How do you  import a dwg file in then Adobe Acrobat, From Cut & Paste or it
have an import ?.
I am learning about Adobe Acrobat to send the calculation in PDF format, I`m
not sure to use it.

The format DWF Wath is ?. Does the ACAD 14 do it ?

Somebody  know how to transform dwg in HTML ?
