How to convert DWG to PDF.

Here’s a quick and easy way to convert a Drawing (DWG) file into a PDF so it can be easily viewed on a desktop computer or other devices.

A standard file format in the design world, a DWG file gets its name from the word “drawing.” This file format contains 2D and 3D design data — such as vectors and geometric data, as well as maps and photos — and is widely used by architects, engineers, and designers.

Because these files are specific to the design world, not everyone is familiar with them. If you want to easily share information or a project with someone who isn’t familiar with design software, you can create a PDF to make it easier for them to access and view the information.

Take these steps to convert a DWG to PDF.

In just a few steps on your desktop, Adobe Acrobat DC allows you to quickly and easily convert your DWG file to a PDF. Here’s how it’s done:

  3. Upload your DWG file.
  4. Click or tap on Create. This converts your selected file to a PDF.
  5. Save your PDF to your desired location.

Once you’ve converted your DWG, you can now easily share your file with everyone in your workflow. Team members can view, comment, and edit the file anywhere in the world on desktop computers and even mobile devices.
