Have you found any clever tools for converting DWG to Designer? I have tried some of those chinese DWG > PDF converters that Mac App Store offers but so far either they have no working trial or they are unable to keep scale. I suppose can use heavy CAD apps for converting but I would rather use something light and simple. Mac is my platform of choice.

There are some online converters etc. for DWG-to-PDF, though I never used/tested those, so can't tell how accurate those are ...

☛ Affinity Designer 1.10.8 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.10.8 ◆ Affinity Publisher 1.10.8 ◆ OSX El Capitan
☛ Affinity V2.3 apps ◆ MacOS Sonoma 14.1.2 ◆ iPad OS 17.1.2

LibreCAD and FreeCAD are pretty light, FreeCAD has a clucnky retro 1980's look and not in a good way lol!

FreeCAD is oriented towards 3D and LibreCAD is predominately 2D.

Libre does not open DWG. FreeCAD imports DWG to filelist but crashes when I try to open the file to a window. 

I will check those online converters but I suppose they are just googled ones, you do not really use them, do you #v_kyr? At least Autodesk Viewer does not print or export vector data.
