dwg files bewteen MAC and PC

I am planning to learn autocad but use a mac. I was going to download the free month to see how it goes. If I create files through the MAC version can those be easily opened in a pc version of autocad and updated, modified, etc.? I do not want to have to buy a pc if possible. Thanks

DWG files are seemless between the two platforms:no special action needed to swap files between them.

Hi @cnwalters1357,

 

Yes, as @pendean and @Patchy have indicated, the drawing format is identical between platforms.  You could run into little speed bumps though if you use some features on the Windows version to modify your drawing files.  Certain features that are included in the Windows version (Object Enablers, OLE, and more) are not supported on the Mac.

 

I suggest that you try to use the Trial to test how this would function in your workflow to see if things go smoothly.  I use both the Mac and Windows versions on the same files and have virtually no issues.
