The free Autodesk TrueView is built on the same core code as AutoCAD and as such has 100% DWG viewing and plotting like AutoCAD. It also has some really nice features besides just viewing a DWG file and that is measuring, plotting with plot styles, and also a batch conversion ability to batch convert drawings to the latest format and even replace plotstyles in that process. I wouldn't highlight it as a viewer as there is the free and premium... Continue reading
