File Types DWF, DXF, DWG and DGN

Hello,

 

Which file types out of DWF, DWFx, DXF, DWG and DGN can Auto Desk Design Review open?

 

Is it true that AutoDesk Design Review can only open DWF and DWFx file formats?

 

As per the documentation, DWG TrueView can open DXF and DWG files. I also read that DWG True View can convert DWG into DWF format. How about DXF file format? Can't this be converted into DWF format? The goal is to leverage Auto Desk Design Review to read files of all types where possible.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Dipendra

FAQ for ADR:

http://images.autodesk.com/adsk/files/design_review_2012_faq_customer_v4.pdf

 

First paragraph and bullet points on TVs webpage:

Download both apps (ADR and TV) and explore more, nothing like hands-on experience while you wait here for replies.

Thanks Dean for responding.

 

I had gone through the faq doc and the url for DWG TrueView, before posting the question. You confirmed that whatever artifacts I was looking are the only ones available.

 

I had few more questions as below:

 

  • How about DGN file? Can either of the app open files in this format?
  • I tried to convert DXF file using DWG TrueView to DWF format with no luck. Maybe I am doing something wrong. Does anyone else have this issue or is it just me?

Thanks.

Dipendra

Thank you for your questions.

 

1. If you already installed AutoCAD or DWG TrueView, you can open directly the DWG or DXF file in ADR.

 

2. If you want to open the DGN file in ADR, please download and install the plugin from this site:

Please let me know if there is any other problem.

Which Plugin? I cannot see any that tout DGN as an option.

You are three years too late for this thread, and that old link.
ADR development stopped in the year 2012.

Have you considered installing Bentley View for free DGN viewing? If I recall ADR 2013 could only open 2D DGN's, not 3D.

Also I'm pretty sure the Plugin was included in later versions but as mentioned previously, development for ADR 2013 has stopped. I could be wrong...
