With Microspot DWG Viewer, viewing, annotating, saving and printing your DWG files has never been easier, faster or more affordable. With its simplicity and power Microspot DWG Viewer is the perfect tool for those that don’t need an expensive CAD application, but require a simple but effective viewing tool.

Microspot DWG Viewer is based on Microspot MacDraft Professional which enables AutoCAD DWG files produced on a PC to be opened and viewed on Apple Macintosh computers. Open files directly on your machine without size restrictions. During the opening of the DWG file you can choose the layout to be opened or open the Model from from a list of available layouts. The scale and units for the file can be specified or DWG Viewer can do it automatically.

The file's layers are then visible via the Layers palette and can be grayed or hidden to make working with them easier and faster. Alongside the existing layers is an Annotation layer that allows you to mark up your drawing with comments using elliptical markers and text. The elliptical marker has a red frame and the text has a yellow background, making the markings in your drawing obvious to the recipient.

The resulting document can be saved as a PDF file with your annotations and/or printed. The Zoom tools and the Hand tool allow you to enlarge any section of the drawing and scroll around.

DWG List of features include:

The Tool palette offers a full complement of annotation tools. You can easily navigate through your AutoCAD files with the zoom and hand tools, red mark-up can be added using the ellipse tool and annotation can be inserted using the text tool.

The user has the ability to open not just the model space but also any layouts that the file contains. You can then decide the Scale and the units you wish to use.

Advanced layer control using the new Layers palette. Once your DWG file has been opened in the DWG Viewer you will be able to see all the layers in the document via the layers palette. These layers can the be hidden or grayed giving you full control over exactly what you want to see and what you don't.

Fully customizable scales adds flexibility to the viewing of your DWG files.

A customizable toolbar with a large number of menu commands greatly increases the speed and ease of working.

No size restrictions when opening DWG files.

Supports AutoCAD 2010/2011 DWG Files, bringing your PC and your Macintosh even closer together.

If I could rate is zero I would. - This is by far the worst app I’ve purchased via the App Store. It won’t load all DWG files and has very limited functionality. You’d think for $40 that it would be a top of the line program but it is a joke.

Worthless App - Can’t Open a DWG File - Total ripoff. Save your money. I should have read the comments before I purchased.

Review by DonLynch

It doesn’t work!!! - I thought, "how could it not do what it says?” Well, it doesn’t. I have tried multiple .dwg files from various CAD versions and all are apparently “corrupt or the file is not compatible with this version.” Show me one that is because so far, I can’t find one. I should have believed what I read in the comments. Giant waste of $. Don’t waste your hard earned money on this!
