How insert a dwg into a word document
You can export your AutoCAD drawings as DWF files, which Microsoft Word can read. (drawing image by Oleg Verbitsky from

The DWG drawing files generated by the AutoCAD computer-assisted design program would often work great in a Microsoft Word document as part of a presentation or report. Unfortunately, Word doesn't accept the direct importation of DWG files, and exporting the drawings as images often results in degradation. You can, however, export your drawing as a web-ready DWF file, which Microsoft Word accepts as an imported object.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open your drawing in AutoCAD.

  2. 2

    Click the "Output" tab, then "Export to DWF/PDF," then "Export DWF." Select the options you want, enter a path and filename, and click "Save."

  3. 3

    Open Microsoft Word.

  4. 4

    Click the "Insert" tab or menu, then click "Object." Select the "Create From File" radio button, and select "Autodesk DWF" from the list of file types. Click "OK," then browse to and open your saved DWF file.
