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 PDF format is a widely used document format containing text, images, and other 2D content in a read-only format. The format was introduced in 1992 by Adobe as a royalty-free format and is largely based on the earlier PostScript file format, with some of its scripting features later removed.

PDF files can contain rasterized images and vector graphics, which can optionally be compressed and encrypted for successful transmission. The format has evolved over the years to include features such as layers, metadata, accessibility features, and interactive forms.
