None that I have found. However, you can get the source to QCad at This program will not read the DWG files, 
but it will read DXF files. Since DWG and DXF come from the same 
manufacturers you can convert a DWG to DXF without any data loss using a 
program like dwg2dxf which is part of the Lx-viewer project
