That is far too broad a question for a Quick Answers forum. Please read, and formulate are more specific question.

You have edited your question but I do not see any new information. The answer is still the same.

simple? hmm...
Your question is quite general and here is not the right place to ask for it (Richard MacCutchan mentioned it).
But some common basic steps involve.

* Inform and understand the dwg-format (or the Format you will base your Viewer on). a great format If I remember right :-(
* Polish your vector graphics skills - I hope you know your WPF (3d...).
* Create a proof of concept of your idea.
* Think about how much it costs to develop this thing (depends on the Features you want)
* Calculate
* Use a ready made commercial solution :-)

The last 3 steps stopped me from implementig such a "tool"...

I agree with this.
I wanted the same thing. After some studies I abandoned this idea and went for displaying *.stl files only.
If your wpf skills are good, displaying *.stl or xml files, panning, zooming and rotating can be done in a couple of day's.
