Libogr uses dwgdirect, now that is really worth working on.

here are some I found :

here is some sketchup plugin for dwg:

I will start on gdal, I will build header files for all gdal/ogr usages of dwgdirect and rebuild the header files from that.


I will note that I think the DWGdirect code in OGR has not kept up with
recent releases of DWGdirect though I might be wrong.  I personally
think the DWGdirect API is fairly clumsy and large and it would not
necessarily be a good idea to tie to it.

I also would suggest you think twice before exposing yourself to the
DWGdirect / ODA code and interfaces for fear of them making some sort of
IP claims against libredwg, though perhaps this is something you have
already considered.
