Despite the previously announced end-of-active-life for Design Review (Autodesk’s DWF viewer), there is now a new release available. This wasn’t supposed to happen, because we should all now be using cloud-based solutions.
A new version of DWG TrueView was needed to deal with the new DWG 2018 format, and one knock-on effect is that a new Design Review was needed to be compatible with DWG TrueView 2018. It’s still only 32-bit, so it appears to be a matter of Autodesk just touching it up enough to keep it compatible.
Interestingly, the new Design Review is not called 2018. Here’s where to find it:
