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.
