Budweiser test updated for AutoCAD 2010

One of the tools I use to convince my collegues (trying to replace AutoCAD with IntelliCAD or ProgeCAD) about the incompatibilities of these AutoCAD clones is the BUDWEISER.DWG test by CAD Studio. This AutoCAD drawing contains many tests which clearly prove that AutoCAD clones are not compatible with the original DWG format.

As a CAD manager, I refuse to solve future problems resulting from combining AutoCAD clones with AutoCAD and creating a mess in our DWG drawing files. Mutual incompatibility of CAD files is a CAD manager's nighmare. For me, it is enough to solve these problems with files coming from some of our external cooperators. I always push to replace such companies.

If you want to check it yourself - here is the link to download the BUDWEISER drawing in all versions of the DWG format, now including DWG2010:

And remember: Don't drink and draw
