Free DWG Viewer

A software application that enables to open and view DWG, DXF, and DWF files, perform measurements and export the drawing to CSF format
Free DWG Viewer is a handy and reliable software application designed to open Autodesk native formats such as DWG, DXF and DWF files. Aside from running as a desktop application, it can also be used to open files inside browsers via the included ActiveX control.

Free DWG Viewer can also be used to open Informative Graphics legacy formats associated with Brava! Desktop and MYRIAD. In addition to that, the application can publish Autodesk drawings to CSF format, which compresses and encrypts the original CAD file for protecting your intellectual property.

Straightforward interface

No matter how you look at it, Free DWG Viewer can only be described as simple and efficient. The installation process is fast and complication-free and the user interface is very easy to navigate through.

All of the features are neatly incorporated into menus, while a toolbar holds some quick controls for common operations such as opening or printing a file. Once you have loaded the resources, you can start exploring the program’s abilities one by one.

Animate views, zoom in and out and much more

A quick summary of its features includes pan / zoom functions, rotate / mirror, a magnifier for detail view, a layer manager, monochrome view and possibilities to customize the background / display colors.

Other options allow users to animate views, to show line weights and to make smooth edges visible. In addition, the measurement feature enables users to view drawing sizes and to calibrate the sketch.

Bottom line

In conclusion, Free DWG Viewer is worth your time and attention. As opposed to most CAD builders and viewers that bundle complex, unnecessary features, this one carries out its purpose without complicating things.
