    Yes they are CAD files, however, the .dwf is Autodesk's equivalent of the PDF file - A lightweight representation of the CAD data.

    I don't have any disillusions about doing 3D modeling on the BB, it would just be nice to have access to drawings in the field - without adding a step in the process.

    In other forums I've read, the best I've seen people come up with was to convert the .dwg to .pdf

    I won't disagree that this method works well. It just requires another step to produce the PDF, and you lose some functionality. However, viewing a PDF is better than not viewing anything at all!

    I was just wondering if there was a way to better streamline the process, and leverage the dwg tools to measure and markup.

    Maybe some day...
