Promine AutoCAD Tip of the Week: Incompatible Drawing Version

Posted by Eva Dierkes on Feb 18, 2019 9:59:09 AM

This week we are going to cover how to convert AutoCAD drawings that are made with a newer version of AutoCAD to older versions and how to set older drawing versions as a default for saving drawings. When receiving a drawing from a person that has a newer AutoCAD version than yourself it can be hard to get in contact with them in time to change the drawing version, so it is nice to know how to change this yourself.

 Video Tutorial

Step By Step

1.Download DWG True View for free from the AutoCAD website

2.Open the drawing in DWG True View

3.Select the Convert Drawing command

4.Add your drawing to the list

5.Select the version you want to convert the drawing to

If you have frequent contact with the same people you can also ask them to save their drawings automatically as an older version

2.Select the ‘Open and Save’ tab

3.Select the desired version from the dropdown menu
