Convert your DDS file to DXF

to

Create vector image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a DDS (DirectDraw Surface) file and from this, create a vector-based DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) file that you can then download and edit/use within vector file editors or use for high definition printing applications. If you have multiple DDS files to convert then our tool can also batch convert DDS files too. Currently our tool supports up to 25 conversions at a time.

Options are available to specify/remove a background color if the source DDS image does not contain a transparent background. Our tool can attempt to determine the background color automatically or you can manually specify the background color to remove.

Description

The DDS file format was introduced my Microsoft in 1999 intended to be its standard image format for the DirectX 7 3D graphics Api. The format is used to store textures for use within 3D graphics and game environments and can be compressed or uncompressed.

The compression algorithm used by DDS was the previously proprietary S3 Texture Compression which could reduce the image file size down and was easy for the GPU to decompress in real-time. The format is still used and there are some 3rd party image editors that are compatible with the format.

DXF files can contain either text or binary content describing Blocks, Entities, Objects and other information using a "Tagging" system. The DXF format is still popular today and can be opened with most popular CAD applications.
