Opening DWL2 files

Did your computer fail to open a DWL2 file? We explain what DWL2 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your DWL2 files.

What is a DWL2 file?

The .dwl2 file extension is most commonly used by the AutoCAD computer aided drafting software. These files contain locked copies of AudoCAD DWG files. When a user opens a DWG file that is opened by another user, the DWL2 file is created to avoid accidentally modifications or deletions of file data.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
