Free CAD Link Opener – Open CAD Links in AutoCAD

From the Autodesk App Store:

CAD Link Opener is a free Autodesk® Revit® application that adds a DWG link opening functionality that was previously non-existent.

When this command is executed, the user selects the DWG link and it will be opened in a new Autodesk® AutoCAD® (Or any other DWG viewer/editor that the user has associated the DWG filetype with) instance in case it was not already running. Otherwise, the aforementioned file will be opened in the already running instance of the process.

Such a feature proves to be helpful whenever the user needs to edit the currently linked DWG, by automatically opening this file for him/her and thus saving him/her some time and effort.
