Converting CALS to DWF

The CALS image format includes a compressed raster/bitmap file. Though considered rare by mainstream users, CALS files are used by many document-handling, DTP and image processing applications employed by the US government. The format itself was created by the Department of Defense as a standard for storing an interchanging graphics data. CALS stands for "Computer Aided Acquisitions and Logistics Support", which is an office inside the Department of Defense.

DWF (Design Web Format) is a file format associated with Autodesk and its function is mainly that of facilitating the transfer of information related to a design project. As opposed to DWG files, the proprietary format of AutoCAD, DWF are more compressed and smaller in size. They can translate complicated structures related to architectural designs or engineering into a series of sheets that are easy to view and print.

So, how to change CALS into DWF?

The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter.
