convert/print .dwg files
Posted on 2004-04-20
I was sent a couple of drawings that were originally made using AutoCAD. (.dwg file extension) I have no plans to modify the drawings, but I do need to be able to save them as picture files.
Because there is serious doubt as to whether we will EVER use it again after we save these three pictures, we DO NOT want to spend a money on software.
Most of the viewers I looked at: A) won't open the file, B) won't let you print the file (I can scan it back into the system if I could print them...), or C) Convert them to a more user-friendly format. I have already checked out Ifran, nxview, brava, and a few others.
I already thought about doing a "print screen" and then editing out the bits I don't need, but I figure a fellow E-E cruiser would know EXACTLY where to go to download this tool.
Executive Summary: (In "Bush-speak")
Convert or print those heinous .dwg files.
Don't wanna pay fer it.
