DWG 2D/3D CAD Drawing

A binary file format that stores CAD drawings and models, created by Autodesk for AutoCAD. Some of the benefits and features of DWG files are:

  • Compatibility: DWG files are compatible with other software packages, such as ZWCAD, BricsCAD, and IntelliCAD, which also support the DWG format. This makes DWG files the industry standard in CAD.
  • DWG Drawing Converters: DWG drawings can be easily converted into various 3D and GIS file formats, such as OBJ, STL, DXF, KML, and KMZ, using our add-ons, Automesher Application and Automapki Application. This enables you to share your AutoCAD designs with different platforms and applications.

DAE Collada File

The primary file format that allows you to transfer digital assets such as materials, mesh geometries, and 3D scene nodes hierarchy between different 3D software applications. DAE has several advantages over other formats, such as:

  • Reusable Geometry Components: You can store and reuse geometry instances that are referenced by multiple objects in your DAE scene, saving memory and disk space.
  • Multiple Texture Images and Coordinates: You can assign different texture images and texture coordinates to each face of your DAE model, creating complex and realistic materials.
  • Color Transparency and Named Groups: You can control the opacity and color of your mesh, as well as organize your DAE objects into named groups for easy selection and manipulation.
  • Seamless DAE Conversion: You can use our Autoconverter and Autoshaper software to easily process and convert your DAE files. They utilize the OpenCOLLADA framework that supports the latest COLLADA specifications.
