I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!Tillie

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.Sabina Calis
Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.Jiunn-Ru Lai

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.Aron Boyette

DWG CAD Format DWG Converter
A DWG file is a CAD (Computer Aided Design) file that has been created with a program called AutoCAD, one of the most popular CAD programs on the market. It's called DWG because it's a shortened version of the word "Drawing" which is what a DWG file essentially is. The file itself is made up of vector data coupled with metadata and either 2D or 3D CAD drawings.
The DWG format was first developed in the 1970s by AutoDesk, the makers of AutoCAD, and is a format know for interoperability with other CAD software such as CATIA and Solidworks. DWG files are popular with builders, architects, designers and anyone who needs to create 3D rendered images. With recent urbanisation he need for sophisticated architecture and planning grows by the year and so does the need for CAD.
DWG files can be converted to many other file formats, with PDF remaining a popular target as it enables views and models to be shared easily with others.
PDF Document Format PDF Converter
The PDF format, or Portable Document Format file, was developed by Adobe Systems. PDF files are popular because they can be easily viewed and edited in a variety of computing platforms. Word documents can easily be exported or converted to PDF, and both presentations and images are also often saved out as a PDF file. Typically, PDF files are not created from scratch, but rather existing file types are converted into PDF format to allow the file to be easily shared and accessed.
PDF files normally look exactly like the original file, with fonts, colours and images all preserved. They can also be annotated and can be opened by almost any device and by any modern web browser. PDF files can be edited using Adobe Acrobat PDF software, which was developed almost 30 years ago and is available on Windows and MacOS.
