AutodeskDWG TrueView Software
As land surveyors we are often sent drawings in all sorts of formats and one piece of software we find very useful is DWG TrueView and best of all it is FREE (subject to Autodesk’s terms and conditions).
DWG TrueView is CAD file conversion software that allows anyone without CAD to open and print DWG drawings and also to open drawings that have been saved in a newer version of CAD software.
The link below takes you to the download page for Autodesk DWG Trueview perfect if you need to open a 2010 version and then save it as an older version for example.
Cute PDF Writer
If you need to send us information so that we can quote for a land or measured building survey then try installing the following FREE software.
This installs as a virtual printer and allows you to capture images of any size and save them as pdf file types. Much easier than trying to scan in an A0 size land survey drawing !
The software is available (along with hundreds of other freeware and shareware programs) via the following link.
