Google Docs does DXF

Over the last few days, Google Docs has added viewing support for 12 more file formats as detailed below.

  • Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
  • Apple Pages (.PAGES)
  • Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
  • Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
  • Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
  • PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
  • TrueType (.TTF)
  • XML Paper Specification (.XPS)

Of most interest to the CAD world is their inbuilt support for viewing DXF files. Whilst DXF support is nice to have,  it goes without saying that DWG support, for me, would obviously be better.

I have tested it out with some architectural, mechanical and piping drawings I had and the viewer seems to work well.
