    Don't give up just yet.

    If you download DWG Trueview you can open the DWG files and then save them in a format you can open.

    Give me a moment to fire up my CAD computer. I did mention an option available to you in my previous post.

    Yes, I can open the drawing. AutoCAD informs me the drawing was not originally done using an AutoDesk product. I have it open on my CAD computer as I type.

    …wife got tired of feeling like she was competing with the computer for my time (but thatis a whole other story).
    Probably a long one. No wonder, if it takes so long to get to the point. The signal to noise ratio is pretty bad.

    Which brings me to why I am now here.

    My son is now 12
    Any student over the age of 11 anywhere in the world can download over $100k worth of FREE Autodesk design software including AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk Alias Automotive for free. Did I mention for free?

    Forget AutoCAD - that is so last century. You should be looking at Autodesk Inventor (mechanical internals) and Alias (body panels, seats, trim).

    I can't believe someone didn't mention this along with all the other noise.

    Yeah, I hear a lot of wind in here too. Must be a southeaster from PA.

    Bilbo: I saved the file in r12 DXF file format but it weights in at a whooping 43.8MBs.

    The 3D capabilities in newer versions of AutoCAD are as different as the internet of the last century and the internet of this century, but it is still AutoCAD (with the legacy code left over from the last century).

    Do your boy a favor and help him prepare for the 21st Century, forget AutoCAD and get a modern design tool.

    His bedside manner needs some work.

    I too mentioned using Inventor early on but I think JDM missed that post. He is correct about AutoDesk giving students, via the Educational Community, access to many of its best programs absolutely free. So have your son download and install the latest version and you could teach him how to use it.
