    No, Design Review only opens DWFx files.

    It sounds like you are looking for a cheap way to automate producing PDF files from DWG files. I don't think you are going to find that looking at Autodesk's free tools.

    If you do not have an AutoCAD application then disregard.

    If you do have an AutoCAD application, however, (2009 or newer I think?) there is a built in PDF driver for plot / publish. If your version does not have that available, you can download a PDF driver (DeskPDF is Free), setup a quick PC3 file, then you can plot / publish straight to PDF from DWG.

    Hope this helps!
