Hello steve
Fastcad have a a viewer "View32" from www.fastcad.com
I also use Autodesk voloview which is slower to load
If you want to view R12 dxf files Insos' QuickViewPlus works a treat.

I quote now from help fastcad view32 file
"View32 is a high performance 2D CAD drawing file viewer. View32 allow you to view, print, and convert CAD (Computer Aided Design) files created by FastCAD 32, EasyCAD 32, FastCAD/EasyCAD DOS, and AutoCAD (DWG format). View32 can also open and save files in DXF format, providing compatibility with most other vector based graphics programs.
View32 is based upon Evolution Computing’s optimized FastCAD 32 engine."

Hope this helps
