AOEMView is arguably one of the obscure programs in the Autodesk software lineup, not least because its name leads to a lot of confusion. The program is often called AOEMView because the folder from which files come with the installation package has that name and it sometimes shows up as an application that users can run from the Start menu on Windows PCs. However, it is actually not an application that the user launches, but an application that another program use. That other program is Autodesk Inventor. This is why users who attempt to run AOEMView (a very common mistake) by itself will get an unresponsive application window.
So what does AOEMView do for Autodesk Inventor? Simply put, it allows Inventor to access DWG files for the purpose of displaying a preview of them for the user attempting to import the file. Autodesk Inventor users who need to translate DWG files for importing will thus require AOEMView to achieve what they want—but they should not run the application by itself because that would obviously be useless, being that the program is more or less just an extension of Inventor.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about which types of files AOEMView can process, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
