Does anyone know of any good freeware products to view and print AutoCAD drawing files (other than Volo View).

I cannot vouch for how good it is, because I personally have never used it. But one of our engineers says it does the job okay based on the price (free). :thumbsup:

Hey,

Here is one: http://www.autodwg.com/dwg-viewer/
I have used it on one of the computers at school when we were upgrading from AutoCAD 2006 to AutoCAD 2007.

Hope you find what you need,

I tried the Free DWG Viewer powered by Brava. It's good but the freeware version does not let you print.

I just downloaded and installed the Autodesk viewer. It weighs in at a hefty 120MB but it looks good based on my brief trial. The plotting options are vastly improved over Volo.
