How to open file with DWL extension?

DWL file description

The .DWL file extension is normally linked with the TurboCAD 2D drafting software and 3D surface modelling software applications. These programs use the DWL files to store the lock files of the TCW files that are used by these TurboCAD softwares.  The purpose of creating a DWL file is to save the original file from being corrupted or damaged when more than one user is accessing the same TCW drawing file. The DWL file let the user see a copy of original file, however, it does not allow the user to make any changes when the original source is being opened or used.  Afterwards, when the original file is closed, the DWL file is automatically deleted.
