Budweiser DWG test for AutoCAD 2008 data

The BUDWEISER DWG compatibility benchmark by CAD Studio is a well-known test drawing I already wrote about.
Now there is a new "2008" version of this test proving that all the AutoCAD clones based on the ODA DWG libraries and claiming "DWG-compatibility" are still not able to read the AutoCAD DWG format correctly. I have personally very bad experience with DWG files written from Microstation, ArchiCAD and IntelliCAD. In any case be aware that you may potentially lose CAD data - both on reading DWG files into a non-Autodesk software and on writing faulty DWG files from such applications.
You can get BUDWEISER2008.DWG from
