Here are 3 best free DWG to PDF converter software. DWG is a drawing file format and you can’t view DWG file content using some browser or built-in tool on Windows PC. You need to use some DWG viewer software or online application to view DWG files. So, converting DWG to PDF file will be a good option as you can view PDF file on any web browser and there are tons of free PDF viewer software also available. Keeping that in mind, I have created this list that lets you convert DWG to PDF document.
Most of these software let you bulk convert DWG to PDF files. Apart from that, each software has some unique feature(s). For example, you can view DWG file, convert DWG to DXF or DWF format, convert DWG files to PDF files using right-click context menu, etc.
So, let’s start with the first free DWG to PDF converter software available in this list.
Autodesk DWG TrueView
Autodesk DWG TrueView is a very popular DWF, DXF, and DWG viewer software. Feature to convert DWG to PDF is also available in this software. You can add multiple DWG files on its interface and each DWG file will open in a separate tab. After that, you can use File menu, access Export option and click on PDF option to get the output file.
Apart from DWG to PDF, it also lets you convert DWG file to DWF and DXF format. The software generates output very well. The only thing is that its set up file size is 790 MB. If this doesn’t bother you, then Autodesk DWG TrueView is a very good option to view DWG files as well as convert them to PDF files.

MoziPDF is my favorite DWG to PDF converter software. The reason is using this software for converting DWG to PDF files is just a matter of 3 clicks. This software doesn’t come with any user interface. It converts DWG to PDF files using right-click context menu. Also, you can convert DWG to PDF files in batch.
Once you have installed this software, you need to select DWG files stored on your PC. After that, right-click on those files and you will see “MoziPDF” menu. Access that menu and then you will see the options to create output PDF files in the same directory and select the output folder for conversion. Select any option you want and then it will quickly create the output PDF files. This is the quicker and easier way to convert DWG to PDF files and that’s why I like this software very much.
PDF Forte is a multi-purpose free PDF converter software. Earlier it was paid and available with trial version but now it is absolutely free. Apart from DWG to PDF conversion, it lets you convert Word to PDF, Excel to PDF, Images to PDF, PSD to PDF, etc. One of its best features is you can convert multiple DWG files to PDF files. For output PDF files, you can also set paper size (A4, A3, A1, etc.) and orientation (landscape or portrait).
Also, the interface is nice and user-friendly. You need to select DWG to PDF conversion option visible on the left side of its interface, drag n drop or manually add DWG files, set output folder, and begin the conversion process. Depending on the size and number of DWG files, the conversion process is finished.
For each output PDF, a separate folder with input DWG file name is created automatically. This is another good feature that I like. During my testing, the output also came as expected for most of the files, but for some files, it didn’t generate accurate output. Still, the software is good enough to try.
These are the working and very useful options available to convert DWG to PDF files. All these DWG converters are very good at doing their job. Still, the most preferred software for me is MoziPDF. I like the feature of converting multiple DWG files, no interface, and right-click context menu feature. Otherwise, each software in this list has its own importance and good for DWG to PDF conversion.
