If you work in architecture or design, you may often need to view and print CAD files, however, CAD printing can be expensive if you don’t have AutoCAD installed on your computer. Fortunately, there are CAD printer tools out there that work very well, without AutoCAD on your computer. Whether you are printing black and white or full color CAD drawings, the tools in this article are excellent alternatives to AutoCAD for CAD printing.
AutoCAD is a great program that allows you to create 2D and 3D technical and engineering drawings. The problem is most people don’t have this expensive program. However, sometimes users still need to view AutoCAD files but don’t want to buy the app. The good news is there are a lot of CADview and ACAD file viewers out there, and some are free to use.
AutoCAD uses three main file formats:
DWF: DWF stands for Design Web Format and is a secure file format used by AutoDesk for viewing design data and drawings.
DWG: DWG is a binary file format for design data used by AutoCAD. DWG files use vector image data and is a native format for CAD programs.
DXF: DXF is a Drawing Exchange Format created by Autodesk to store CAD models. This format is similar to the DWG file format used for AutoCAD.
See our review of the five AutoCAD file viewers below to help you decide which one is best for you:
