    Need autocad 2012 file to open on autocad 2007

    Hello,
    Can anyone please tell me how I would open a file saved to Autocad 2012 on Autocad 2007? It is too late to save the file differently and I do not have access to Autocad 2012.
    Thank you
    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Download a copy of DwgTrueview from the autodesk website. (Pick 64bit or 32bit depending on your system).

    http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet...112&id=9078813

    Its FREE and allows you to open and convert between all Autocad formats.

    FYI - AutoCAD 2012 saves to the 2010 file format. The next format change should be when AutoDesk releases AutoCAD 2013 assuming they aren't going to skip the number because someone is superstitious.

    Interesting thought Kyle.

    They are already 1 year ahead in the releases, e.g Acad2012 was released in 2011, are we now going to get releases 2 years in the future?
    Perhaps they will call it 2012-B.

    It's getting as bad as magazine subscriptions.
