What is a DWL2 file?

A DWL2 file is a file used to lock a drawing created by AutoCAD, a program used to design 2D and 3D designs. It stores lock information when a drawing (.DWG file) is opened in the program. DWL2 files prevent simultaneous access by different users to a drawing, which may cause the file to become corrupted.

More Information

DWL2 files are not meant to be opened by a user. They are only intended to lock the associated DWG file from being opened. It only appears when a drawing file is opened, which is when AutoCAD creates a DWL2 file. The file is automatically deleted when the drawing is closed.
