Microspot has introduced Microspot DWG Viewer 1.6.6 a new Universal version of its 2D AutoCAD file viewer for the Mac.

DWG Viewer opens AutoCAD DWG files created on Windows PCs, allowing Mac users to open the Layouts as well as the Model and letting them to show, hide or grey the individual layers and zoom in and pan around the document. Mark-up tools are available and documents can be printed and saved as PDF files, so they can be shared with co-workers that don't have the DWG Viewer application.

Microspot DWG Viewer is available from the Microspot web store at a cost of £33, though existing users can upgrade for free.

The software requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher, a G4 700MHz Mac (or better) with 256MB RAM and 100MB disc space.
