Hi,

Our EX 3D designer left us with some DWG files that we need to open, however, they wont open on the version of AutoCAD that we have saying that it is made in a newer version.

We can open them in TrueView, but need to find the measurements.

Anyway to convert DWGs to make them backward compatible or how can we measure the dimensions of the drawings in a DWG file ... any software that would help us do that?

Thanks
Much appreciated
Sunny
