123CAD Converter allows you to use the CAD industry standard DXF files. This well known file format is used to interface virtually all CAD programs to other types of software. 123CAD does not interface directly to DXF files but our 123CAD Converter program, called DXFCONVERTER will convert from the DXF file to a CSV file and vice versa. The CSV is a Comma Separated Variables file, a text file that has data for each column of a worksheet, separated by commas.
This means you can export your sketch to, for example, Autocad, or you can get geometry from Autocad, through a couple of extra operations in both packages. The conversion process works for points, lines, circles, arcs, and splines (certain type of curves, normally used in CAD software).
Our CSV format is pertinent only to 123CAD. Click here to get the information about our proprietary CSV format.
