DXF Drawing Exchange File

A universal file format for exchanging DWG drawing data between AutoCAD and other programs. It has the following features:

  • ASCII Format: The DXF format is text-based and uses a standard syntax to store DWG drawing data. It can be easily edited and viewed with any text editor or viewer.
  • Exchange of DWG Drawing: DXF serves as a conduit for exchanging DWG drawing data between AutoCAD and other programs. This is particularly beneficial as the native DWG file format is proprietary and requires a license to use.

DXF File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application allow you to import and export DXF files, and convert them into various other file formats. You can use our products to convert 3D meshes into a set of DXF faces organized in colored layers. This allows you to further process and modify your drawing data using your default DWG editor.


KML Keyhole Markup Language File

A file format that enables you to store and share geographical data with Google Earth and Google Earth Pro. Some of the benefits and features of KML files are:

  • XML Format: KML files use XML to store point, line string, polygon, and Collada DAE model geometry, which can be easily edited and customized.
  • Interoperability: KML files can be viewed and manipulated by various applications and software, such as Google Earth, Google Maps, ArcGIS, QGIS, and more.

KML Files Converter: KML files can be imported and exported by our Automapki Application, which is compatible with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD. This application allows you to convert your DWG entities, such as point, polygon, curve, mesh, 3D solid, and raster image, to KML files, and vice versa.
