Autocad 3d Wireframe drawing to Flash

I want to take a wireframe drawing from Autocad and export it to a flash format and be able to rotate, pan and zoom in on the drawing.

I understand that this may be possible to do with Swift 3D? Would this be a good application to try?

I suppose it being true 3D is not very important, I looked at some examples on the Swift 3D website of vector export to flash and zoom definitely looks like it should be supported, as I was able to use the flash zoom right-click function.

Would anyone have good resources that would help me figure out how to do this?

Here's an idea, export the drawing as Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) from AutoCAD. Import the .eps file into Adobe After Effects. From within AE, create a composition, add your effects, and export the file as Adobe Flash (.swf). I have not tried this, but it may have potential.

I am a long time user of Swift 3D and can tell you that it is an excellent application. It can accept a .dxf file and has a lot of animation and output options. I highly recommend it, and there are a host of tutorials on the erain website (www.erain.com) that will help you get to grips with it.
