hi, I need to convert dwf files back to dwg file, is there any free dwf to dwg converter? What is the best way to convert dwf to dwg, I tried to insert dwf into dwg drawing as OLE, but layer information lost, I want to keep the layer information. How?

hi, you can use ZWCAD+ to convert DWF file to DWG, here are the steps to make it work.

Step 1:open DWF file in ZWCAD+ directly, if you doesn't have ZWCAD+, don't worry, download from here: http://www.zwsoft.com/zwcad/ZWCAD_Overview/. You can use it free for 30 days.

Step 2: In ZWCAD+, from the Ribbon menu application button > Save as, or directly input command SAVEAS on command line, choose save as dwg file, then you finish to convert dwf to dwg format, dwg R14~ dwg 2013 are available, you can choose dwg 2010.

But to keep layer information when converting dwf to dwg, the premise is that, you need to make sure the dwf file has layer information included when it is created.
