MacDraft Pro Icon DWG Viewer 3.0

What’s new in DWG Viewer 3?

All the new features and improvements included in the latest DWG Viewer. We’re focused on building the fastest and easiest 2D CAD viewer.

DWG Viewer Main Screen

Supports macOS Sonoma

Now fully compatible with the latest Mac operating system and ready for future releases, DWG Viewer can now take full advantage of the latest Mac technologies and system features.

Apple Silicon compatible

DWG Viewer 3 runs natively on Macs powered by the Apple Silicon chips, for powerful and unrivalled performance. This means that DWG Viewer 3 is now future-proof and ready for any new machines and operating systems.

DWG 2023 (AC1032)

We have fully updated the file support system to work with the latest AutoCAD DWG file version. This brings a host of new compatibility features and the confidence that you can work with and share the most up-to-date DWG files.

Improved interface

We’ve given DWG Viewer a simpler and refreshed user interface, to make it easier for you to navigate to the options and tools you need. This will give you a faster workflow and improve productivity.

Increased drawing size

We have now increased the drawing size to a massive 1780 by 1780 inches. This means that you can work with huge and complex drawings without worrying about the document size.

MacDraft file support

DWG Viewer 3 now supports the viewing of the latest MacDraft 7 and MacDraft 8 files (.md70). We have also kept the previous file support, meaning you can view the older MacDraft files (.md60).

Improved measure note

Adjustments have been made to the position of the measurement note at the end of the measurement line. These changes will make it easier to be precise when measuring between points.

Zoom shortcut

We have changed the Zoom In and Zoom Out keyboard shortcuts to Command + + and Command + - respectively, making them more consistent with other macOS applications.

Bug fixing

In addition to the new features and improvements, we have fixed the various crash, stability, visual and customer reported issues. This will help to keep DWG Viewer running smoothly.
