Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
* * * WAIT! January 31, 2014 Update! * * *
Autodesk has discontinued their online DWF translator, called Freewheel, that this app used for years to show DWFs in all their glory to Mac users around the world. Because of this, McDwiff no longer works.
There's a chance Autodesk will re-open Freewheel, but it's not likely. So your best best is to not buy this app until we get an update from Autodesk!

McDwiff is a Mac OS X application that opens, views, converts, and prints DWF and DWFx files (McDwiff doesn't open DWG or DXF files! For those, use AutoCAD for Mac.)
McDwiff is also available for iPad.
McDwiff connects to Autodesk's online DWF translator, so accuracy is always 100%. Of course this means your DWF is being uploaded to Autodesk servers, so don't use McDwiff unless you're OK with that. It's all private and stuff, but you never know.
Open any DWF (2D or 3D) on your Mac, just like any other file type. 3D files open, but 3D rotation is still "in the oven", so to speak.
Fast zooming and panning - McDwiff uses predictive image processing, supports multipage DWF files, lets you print DWFs, and can export DWF to TIF, GIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, or PDF.
McDwiff requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
What's New in Version 2.1
Now with AppleScript support for batch converting/exporting DWFs to image formats (JPG, PNG, etc.)
Not a good app
I have tried to see this app many times over the past 6 months to read a dwf file. Mostly, it is unable to open the file. Very frustrating - it just doesn’t seem to work...
I didn't have any problems with it (v2.1 (21)). Does what it claims to do and I'm happy.
waste of time -
I uninstalled this after 5 monutes and reverted back to the older "free" version. Does not export as it claims and really slow with no indication whether or not it is communicating with Autodesk servers
