Key details

DWG TrueView is a free utility available from Autodesk that you can use to view CAD files in DWG format and carry out limited tasks.

You can use DWG TrueView to:

  • View 2D and 3D files.
  • Navigation in Model Space and Paper Space.
  • Convert between different DWG file versions.
  • Mark up files (when you add Design Review for free).
  • Print and plot DWG files.

DWG TrueView training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) DWG TrueView courses.

We can host the training at one of our centres, at your venue or online.

Stewart Cobb

Stewart Cobb Autodesk Certified Instructor

Stewart began his working life as a junior draughtsman, and progressed through to Design Director leading a studio of designers working on both 2D and 3D projects.

He then worked for himself for over 25 years, completing around 100 design projects per year for a myriad of clients, including household names such as Vauxhall and McDonalds.

More recently, Stewart’s focus has been on training. He has been an Autodesk Certified Instructor since 2010, hosting courses in AutoCAD, Revit, 3ds Max, AutoCAD Plant 3D, Civil 3D and SketchUp.

In between courses, Stewart uses these applications professionally when carrying out project work for clients. Using the applications regularly helps him to keep up-to-date with the latest technologies and practices. He also specialises in the production of photorealistic rendered images and visualisations using renderers including V-Ray.

Outside of work, Stewart enjoys music (he runs the sound desk for a number of local bands), reading and playing with any new piece of technology he can lay his hands on!
