Our tool lets you upload a DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) file and from this, create a new image saved in the GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) 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 DXF image files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

Along with converting DXF image files to GIF, 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 DXF file uploads you will also see options to resize and rotate your image.

Description

The DXF file format was first introduced in 1982 as part of Autodesk's AutoCAD software. DXF files were intended at the time to allow data interchange between AutoCAD and other CAD related applications. The format has evolved over the years with the most recent version coming in 2007.

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.

DXF Notes

When imported, DXF files will be converted to 3D geometry comprising vertices and faces using an Extrude method, the extrusion value can be set before the conversion starts. If the DXF file contains color information this will be included where possible.

Description

GIF files have been around since the mid-to-late 1980's and were introduced by CompuServe as a way to compress color images into small file sizes suitable for downloading which at the time most download speeds were limited. The format allows varying size color palettes up to 256-colors in total to be defined from a palette of 16 million colors.

Later on the ability to add animations to the GIF file format was added. GIF files became a popular image file format for the early internet due to the small size, large color palette and animation capabilities and is still popular today.
