I am having a problem opening up DWG & DXF files from manufacturers on the internet. Usually I can't open up the dwg file so I ask them to send me a dxf file and some open up and some do not.  I am using Tcad 16.2 professional. Any sugesstions?

Maybe the dwg/ dxf version is to new, compared to your TC Version.

If you do a "Save As" of an empty new drawing to DWG, it will tell you in "Setup" (Alt+U) what DWG/DXF version that TurboCAD will handle. TurboCAD Version 16 should handle up to AutoCAD 2007 files.
