CAD Viewer / Markup

Open AutoCAD drawings without an AutoCAD license

View DWG / DXF files without AutoCAD

CAD Viewer is designed to be easy to use for the non-CAD user, but CAD professionals will also appreciate features such as Back and Forward browsing, multiple file selection and batch printing. Supports all DXF and DWG versions to AutoCAD 2021 as well as HGPL and multiple raster formats.

The straight forward interface makes the software particularly suitable for non-CAD users. The software can essentially become a ‘Map Viewer’, ‘Land Titles Viewer’, ‘House Plan Viewer’, ‘Inventory Parts Viewer’ etc.

“I have enjoyed your product for many years – compared to other viewers we have seen and used – your product’s functionality has served me well.”

“Just the fact that you keep up with the all the latest versions of AutoCAD is enough for me. Love it”

Measure, Markup and Print

CAD Markup is a really easy to use tool designed to simply open, view, measure, markup, and print DWG and DXF CAD files. CAD professionals will appreciate features such as Back and Forward browsing, whilst novices will appreciate the ease of use and simple interface. CAD-Viewer has multiple file selection and batch printing and even outputs PDF files. It supports all DXF and DWG file versions.

CAD Markup provides all the capabilities of the standard version CAD Viewer plus the extra ability to overlay the drawing with text notes and other red-lining elements such as lines, boxes and arrows. The drawing along with corrections or highlighted areas may be printed, saved to a PDF document, or saved to a raster image format. The source drawing remains untouched by the markup operations.

“Saved me a truck load of money and time. All my staff can use it so i dont have to rely on the design team to access and report on our drawings”
