I agree that the DWF vs. PDF war is long over. For example, AutoCAD puts PDF on par with DWF. My mention of DWF in this article is based on the state of the practice today. It is what it is. You can see that our glorified vision for this does not involve files that are artifacts. Instead, the data just resides in the cloud and does not have to be moved around. It can be used for an integrated design, analysis, simulation, and fabrication process that will be informed by data from the use of previous versions of the product.

That technology preview has ended. The team is only collecting feedback from Inventor 2017 users to see if the built-in functionality of 2017 is sufficient so that the technology preview functionality is no longer necessary.
