I'm a Mechanicall engineer and I'm starting to work in Linux.
I need to make 2D drawings (for home applications), so I decided to start to use LibreCAD (I'm using 2.2.0 alpha version).
Unfortunately there isn't *.dwg file support. I tried to open a simple *.dwg file (designed with AutoCAD 2008), but it doesen't work...
So I decided to investigate and I found a method:
I used teigha converter: i converted the file from *.dwg to *.dxf and it was possible to open the file with LibreCAD!
I saw that is possible to convert from *.dxf to *.dwg.
Searching on internet, it seem that it is possible to use TeighaFileConverter directly from the linux shell, so could be an idea to integrate this function inside LibreCAD?
LibreCAD already has DWG support. But the problem is, that DWG support is very rudimentary. DWG is a closed format and all available documentation is from re-engineering. Thus there are still often issues opening DWG files.
investing less than half an hour into Search function can save hours or days of waiting for a solution
