What is a .DWG file?

DWG files are 2D or 3D drawings created by Autodesk AutoCAD or other CAD programs. They contain vector image data and metadata in the DWG format, one of the most widely used CAD formats since its release in 1982. DWG files may store various types of technical drawings, such as architectural drafts, room layouts, and object designs.

You will most likely encounter a DWG file if you are a construction or design professional, such as an architect, mechanic, or engineer. For example, if you are an architect, a coworker may send a CAD drawing of a building prototype as an email attachment for you to review. File Viewer Plus can open the attachment, print the design, and convert the design to PDF or image formats.
