DXF Files

DXF, which stands for Drawing Exchange Format, is a widely-used file format across the CAD industry. Like DWG, it was created by Autodesk, but unlike DWG, it is not a proprietary file format. Instead, it is an open standard, which means that it can be used by any CAD program. As a result, it is supported by practically every CAD program available on the market, making it a great format to choose if you need to share or collaborate on a design project. In this section, you can learn everything you need to know about the DXF file format.
