D'OH! My bad, my bad... A .DWG file is a drawing file, AutoCAD uses it.

Nope, but Autodesk (makers of AutoCAD, strangely enough ) makes a reader for those types of files, though I believe you have to pay to get it. Look around on Google, you might just find an alternative!

If not, just get him to print them out for you. That's what my dad does (he uses AutoCAD).
