How to convert DWG files to PDF

This article does not address converting a PDF into a DWG file. If you’re using an Autodesk product, a tutorial on this functionality is offered here.

Revu uses PDF as its standard file format. You’ll need to convert your DWG files to PDF before you can open them in Revu.

If you have CAD software and a subscription plan for Revu 21 Core/Complete or a CAD/eXtreme edition license for Revu 20 & below, creating a PDF via the Bluebeam plugin allows you to open your desired files in Revu.

If you don’t have CAD software and you don’t have a Core/Complete plan or a CAD/eXtreme edition license, you may still print to PDF without the Bluebeam plugin. Download DWG Trueview from the Autodesk website, then follow these steps:

  1. Open the desired DWG file in DWG Trueview.
  2. Select Plot.  
  3. Under printer/plotter, select the Name dropdown and click Bluebeam PDF
  4. Select OK
  5. Place the file in your desired location and select Save.

Your DWG file is now converted to PDF, which you can open in Revu.
