Microspot DWG Viewer for Mac OS X is released.

6th December 2004 - Maidstone, Kent. Microspot Ltd, developers of 2D and 3D graphics and photo applications, have announced the release of Microspot DWG Viewer for Mac OS X. Microspot DWG Viewer is a product based on Microspot MacDraft. It allows users to view and print DWG files in 2D on Mac OS X v10.2.8 or higher. Each layer of the drawing may be shown or grayed or hidden and displayed at various zoom levels. The drawing can be printed to scale and using the Save to PDF option may be saved as a PDF file.

Microspot DWG Viewer is aimed at Mac OS X users who need to see 2D AutoCAD DWG files and print the results. It is a low cost product that will give users an easy and convenient method of looking at these sometimes very complex drawings. This is the first release of this product and while it is not always able to display everything in the AutoCAD drawing it has proved good enough for many Macintosh users and will be refined in future releases.

Microspot DWG Viewer will not allow editing of the drawing but Microspot are offering an upgrade to Micropsot MacDraft Professional, an easy to use 2D Drafting program which may be used for creating original drawings or editing DWG files. Information about Microspot MacDraft is available on the Microspot web site.

Microspot DWG Viewer is only available as a download from the Microspot web store at for US customers or for UK or European customers. DWG Viewer costs US$49.00 (£29.00 or €42.50) excluding taxes. Multiple licenses are available on request.
