Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a DWG (Drawing) file and from this, create a new image saved in the PCX (Picture Exchange) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple DWG image files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.
Along with converting DWG image files to PCX, our tool allows you to also adjust the image with some simple effects such as applying a greyscale filter to the image. These additional options are available within the Options tab. Along with Greyscale, you can also mirror/flip the image if needed. For single DWG file uploads you will also see options to resize and rotate your image.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your DWG to PCX.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DWG file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DWG to PCX conversion has completed, you can download your PCX file straight away.
We aim to process all DWG to PCX conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.

The DWG file represents a CAD drawing containing either 2D or 3D information. The format was developed in in the 1970's and adopted as a CAD standard file format in the following years.
The file format is binary and continues to be developed and enhanced to this day. Its widespread use means DWG files can be opened in many popular CAD applications.
The PCX file format is a legacy image file format originally released in 1985 by ZSoft Corporation. It was the native file format for the PC Paintbrush application and soon became one of the standard image formats for DOS.
The format uses an indexed palette method for storing color information and supports formats starting at 1-bit-per-pixel (bpp) through to 8-bpp, though support for 24-bit color was added later on. Image files based on the PCX format can still be found today and are supported by a limited number of modern applications.
