You can view
.dwg files with Autodesk® DWG TrueView™ software, a free stand-alone .dwg viewer with DWG TrueConvert™ software included. Built on the same viewing engine as AutoCAD® software, DWG TrueView enables you to view
.dwg and DXF™ files, just as you would in AutoCAD. By installing the free Autodesk® Design Review software, you can then open
.dwg files as well as view, print and track changes to Autodesk 2D and 3D design files without the original design software.
Beginning with the 2010 release, AutoCAD-based products enable users to output to Portable Document Format (PDF files) within the application. DWG to PDF conversion has never been easier.
