What is Autodesk View?
Autodesk View is an application associated with several Autodesk file viewers. The application may come as a feature of a particular software program, or it may also come as a standalone CAD viewer.
Some of the standalone software programs that provide users with a CAD viewing application are: AutoCAD WS, Autodesk DWG TrueView, Autodesk Volo View, and Autodesk Inventor View.
AutoCAD WS provides the user with an application that allows for viewing of native DWG-rendered designs through a Web browser. The application allows everyone working on the design to collaborate and work on changes on the design via an online portal.
Autodesk DWG TrueView is a standalone program that utilizes the viewing engine used for AutoCAD. This allows the user to view both DWG and DXF files, which are the default formats for AutoCAD designs.
Autodesk Volo View is another application that allows the user to view DWG and DXF files. It also allows for viewing of DWF files. Users can view and edit designs through this application.
Autodesk Inventor View is the viewing application specifically designed for Autodesk Inventor files. Users that do not have the Inventor software installed are enabled to view Inventor files; as well as print the files per part or assembly.
