How to Convert DWF to DWG Online

By Jamie Lisse

If you have an AutoCAD DWF file that you need to convert to DWG there are a lot of programs available to do the conversion. If you do not want to pay for a program and would rather do the DWF to DWG conversion online, you can do that with AutoDWG. AutoDWG makes software for the conversion but also offers an online conversion service via email. Within as little as 24 hours you can have your DWF file converted to DWG online through AutoDWG.

Open your Internet browser. Go to the AutoDWG website (see Resources).

Navigate to the "Conversion Services" page. You can find the link on the navigation bar at the top of the page.

Locate the section of the page with the email address for file conversion. Click on the email address and it will open a new email message.

Attach your DWF file to your email message. List in the body of the email that you want your DWF file converted to DWG format. Ask for a quote as to how much the conversion will cost you. 2009 conversion price: $10 per file.

Wait for a reply email from AutoDWG. Typically you can expect a response within 24 hours if you send your email during the normal work week. You will get a PDF attachment in the email that is a quote for the conversion with an estimated turnaround time, as well as a payment form. If you can edit PDFs on your computer, then you can simply edit the PDF and email it back. If not, you can print it out and fax it in. Once you get the PDF form back to them they will email you the new DWG file once it is converted.
