COMPATIBILITY

AutoCAD

All of the files on CAD Architect is saved in AutoCAD 2007 format. Earlier versions of AutoCAD will not be able to open most of the files as some of the new features in AutoCAD 2007 or later will not be backward compatible with the older versions.

What if you have an earlier version of AutoCAD?

If you have a version of AutoCAD which is older than AutoCAD 2007, with Autodesk FREE DWG TrueView software you can convert all the AutoCAD 2007 files on this website to an older format DWG files for use in your version (all versions) of AutoCAD or other software.
