Thank you ravier for the answer.
You can use Autodesk DWF Viewer (Autodesk Design Review), or you can use ZWCAD+ directly, open DWF file in the CAD software that you create it, no need another dwf viewer. If you have ZWCAD+ installed, double click the DWF file and ZWCAD+ will open the DWF file.

Here you can download the latest ZWCAD+:

DWF file is standard for Design Web Format. DWF format is highly compressed and it is smaller than DWG, so you can send it fast via internet. It is also security than DWG format, you can communicate with anyone who only need to view, review, or get a hard copy of the design.
