AutoCAD and PS/PSP

Postby Wonder » Sun Apr 27, 2003 6:31 am

I have both Photoshop as well as Paint Shop Pro. Working with architects, I get a lot of AutoCAD drawings sent to me via email. Is there a way that a file with a .dwg extension can be converted so I can open it in either Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro? Since I don't have a CAD program, I can't open any of these files and am hoping I can do something or add in some kind of plugin so that I'll be able to view the drawings using one of these programs.

Paint Shop Pro 7 sometimes can handle dwg files, however the viewing isn't that great, and I think the same goes for Photoshop, since neither of them are vector-based programs.
But, I found this freeware cad editor that might help you at least viewing the drawings.


Thank You Jaci

I'll go download the program right now. Appreciate it!
