Best/Fast DWG viewer?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone a good recommendation for a good DWG viewer? I am tired of importing, choosing units, etc. just to view a file. A slow procedure.

There is a simpler viewer called "eDrawings" but it crashes constantly.

Has anyone here discovered a better alternative?

Thank you!

We use AutoDesk TrueView, running Windows XP in Parallels Desktop. It has proved to be a reliable tool for viewing incoming AutoCAD files and checking outgoing AutoCAD exports. It is Windows only, but is available for Mac users with the expenditure of several hundred dollars and a little bit of time. It was worth it to us.

Katie, tahnk you. I already contacted them and they suggested checking an option in the Preferences called "Use Software Open GL". It has worked for many files, but huge DWG files still crash or behave very slow. Anyway, the situation is better. But fot bigger files, the only option I have is to import them into VW.
