if this is a small-one-time need. I could help you out by using my autodesk products to create dwf file. –  Brad Nesom Jun 16 '11 at 14:40

@mapperz- a dxf is different than a dwf. dxf = drawing transfer format - while dwf = drawing web format. If I am not mistaken, a dwf can be printed from within the autodesk free software "truview" - similar to printing to pdf it is a type of output device from within autocad and other autodesk products. I think trueview will plot to dwf. –  Brad Nesom Jun 16 '11 at 14:39
    
Correct - added an image from AutoCAD - If need to Print from DWF - wouldn't exporting to PDF be much easier - the question then is what advantage DWF has over PDF? –  Mapperz Jun 16 '11 at 14:53
    
it started about 10-12 years ago as the autodesk answer to pdf. pdf took of and dwf stayed home. it is a good format. especially if you need lightweight vewable interactive cad files. advantage is you can save views/layouts, and turn on off layers. even fly 3d. –  Brad Nesom Jun 16 '11 at 14:56
    
Thanks! I have to write a code for this conversion using autocad teigha functions. –  annie Jun 17 '11 at 16:38

You can download impression (semi cheap) or free student version which has saveas > dwf

Or to create/print dwf from dwg layout download

And then to view dwf you can use an extensive autodesk api or the gui download

AutoDWG DWG2DWF Converter a batch converter converts DWG/DXF to DWF without need of AutoCAD.

Select a project (folder), and generate a dwf file for each dwg file in the project, then publish them to the Internet/Intranet or the drawing management system.

The command line will allow you to convert dwg to dwf in silent without interface.
