First there was Project Freewheel.
Then there was Autodesk Freewheel.
Now there is Autodesk 360.
As I mentioned earlier in the month (// more), Autodesk Freewheel is retiring tomorrow, January 31, 2014. The functionality of sharing a design via just the browser, in this case a DWF file, is available as part of Autodesk 360 so existing users can graduate to this superior technology.
The steps for modifying company web sites involve:
- Uploading DWF files from wherever they are currently located, such as a company web site, to Autodesk 360.
- Setting the permissions in Autodesk 360 to public for those uploaded DWF files.
- Updating the HTML on the company web site to reflect the new location and Autodesk 360 API for DWF file sharing.
For cases where the code remains unchanged, tomorrow you will see:
Viewers of this page will automatically be redirected to Autodesk 360 after 30 seconds. It's great to see ideas that start out in Autodesk Labs make their way into fully supported products and services.
Matriculation to the 360 family is alive in the lab.
