Hello!  I need the ability to display a thumbnail of an AutoCAD image on a webpage.  When the user clicks the thumbnail, my web app will fire up AutoCAD and begin editing the .dwg file.

My problem is that .dwg files are not considered "images", which makes this sort of tricky.  I really don;t want to to have to convert each AutoCAD file i want to add to my website, so i'm looking for another solution.

Thanks ahead of time!
