    Hey, so does anyone know how to convert a DWG file into something that will open up in photoshop with a good resolution? I tried exporting as a EPS but the drawing then becomes tinyyy and so blurry and pixelated.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    File > Place > ArtworkName.eps (via Photoshop) will embed the vector data into a Smart Object, which you can then scale as needed.

    I've opened them in illustrator in the past and you can then export them as a psd. Could just download the illustrator trial?

    Illustrator will open the dwg files. You can then make the image bigger if it is tiny (ctrl. A then shift click & drag corners) then export as and save as pdf
