Convert your DXF file to ICO

Convert image files with our easy-to-use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) file and, from this, create a new image saved in the ICO (Icon) format that you can then download and edit 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 ICO, our tool allows you to also adjust the image with some simple effects, such as applying a grayscale filter to the image. These additional options are available within the Options tab. Along with grayscale, you can also mirror or 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 the 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

The ICO file is an image format that started life on Microsoft Windows 1.0 and was used exclusively for storing image icons used by the operating system. Back then, ICO files were limited in size to 32x32 pixels with only two colors. With subsequent versions of Windows, the format has been amended and upgraded to support larger images with more colors.

Although the initial ICO format was not compressed due to their already small sizes (and limited computing power to decompress them in real-time), as the size of image icons has increased over the years, Microsoft recommends that for larger icon files, PNG compression be used for storing the raster data.
