There is a workaround for what you want to do.
I assume that you have a pdf printer installed already. Open the dwf file with Design Review and print it as a pdf file. Then open the pdf with Illustrator and from there export it as a dwg file. The result probably will be out of scale but it can be easily fixed so it can be inserted in correct scale in max.
Hope this will do!

I think my question is unclear.

I have a dwf file, I want to take the 3d out of it to max. DWF viewer/publisher cannot revert dwf to something usable in max

Autocad doesnt open or import DWF files.
But Google it, there are some DWF to DWG converters out there. Dont think any of those have cracks but a free trial might do what you need.
