Inserts a DWF or DWFx file as an underlay into the current drawing.


The Select DWF File dialog box (a standard file selection dialog box) is displayed. Once you select a DWF or DWFx file, the Attach DWF Underlay dialog box is displayed. After the file is attached, you can adjust and clip the underlay through the DWF Underlay Ribbon Contextual tab.

When you attach a DWF or DWFx file as an underlay, you link that referenced file to the current drawing. Any changes to the referenced file are displayed in the current drawing when it is opened or reloaded.

Note: If you plan to access DWF or DWFx files from the Autodesk Vault client server, the Vault file open dialog box supersedes the Select DWF File dialog box. Access to the Autodesk Vault client server is only available to Autodesk Subscription customers. (Not available for AutoCAD LT.)
