The free ShareNow utility allows you to publish your design to Project Freewheel with one click. The utility publishes a DWF from your design, uploads it to the Project Freewheel server, and invokes your browser so you can see your design in all its glory.

You can email your teammates a link or simply provide them with the session name over the telephone.

We are planning to release an updated ShareNow utility in the near future. We are anxious to get feedback from AutoCAD 2009 users on the ease of use regarding this utility: [email protected].
