DWG/DXF-files slooow

Opening and measuring DWG/DXF-files like big layouts is quite slow with
SW, is there any free viewer kind of software fr DWG/DXF with measument
tool? Don't have to be dimensioning, just measurement...

Try eDrawing 2004. If you have eDrawing professional it will allow you to measure the native DXF/DWG files you open.

You missed the most important word: free ;-)
I work for many customers so I can't (well, I could but I know the answer already ;-)) just say to all that , "ok, you need to buy this and that because..."

Thanks, this will take some time (testing all of them) :-) I have already tred TurboCAD but with no success, it couldn't open DWG that was not a problem for SW (still slow, but..)

FelixCAD opens really nice atleast snmall R12 and R2002 files, I'm also going to try Pro/Desktop Express that should support DWG/DXF.

If you have SolidWorks Office, eDrawing Pro came with it so you would already have what you need without further expense on even need to install anything else.

Well, Cadopia use to have a shareware version.. can not find it but for $250usd it's native DWG/DXF compliant. As for how fast it is, I'm not sure. The old shareware version I had was ok in speed and I could open very large multilayer building layouts with little problem.

Volo View Express does markup. It's free.
