There are new Autodesk products (AutoCAD LT or similar) for Mac OS and iOS, but I couldn't find a simple free DWG viewer for Mac.

AutoCAD WS is a free app on the Mac App Store. I've never tried it.

Has 16MB file size limit. And you have to register to Autodesk (or already have their account). Otherwise seemed okay. – akauppi Mar 18 '13 at 14:28

The free eDrawings Viewer for Mac claims to be able to read and display DWG files. The Microspot DWG Viewer also provides support for DWG files.

I don't have any DWG files to test these two products on at the moment, but they're worth a shot.
