Autodesk Impression Technology Preview is available for you to download from http://labs.autodesk.com. This is the first full-blown application to be posted on Autodesk Labs. With this new technology, you can "create presentation-ready graphics directly from your CAD drawings. Open your DWG and DWF files with Autodesk Impression, and start to develop illustrations right away in an environment that is straightforward, yet flexibile enough to explore your creative side. Use pre-built appearance styles to add everything from hand-drawn strokes to textured color fills, or produce your own distinct look by creating custom appearance styles. Either way, the look-and-feel of your drawing is reusable – saving you time, and effort. And because Impression understands your DWG data, you can also take advantage of the power of blocks and layers."
