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 SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your DXF to SVG.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DXF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DXF to SVG conversion has completed, you can download your SVG file straight away.
We aim to process all DXF to SVG 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 being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the DXF file you submit to us. The resulting SVG file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DXF to SVG tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Full Name: Drawing Exchange Format
Mime Type: image/x-dxf
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.
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.
Full Name: Scalable Vector Graphics
Mime Type: image/svg+xml
Introduced by the W3C organisation in 2001 the SVG file format grew to become the standard web file format for vector based 2D images and is supported by the majority of modern web browsers. SVG files are Xml based text files containing 2D vector elements such as paths, simple shapes, colors and more.
The SVG format itself whilst primarily a vector format can include raster images as well as text. Due to its vector based format SVG files lend themselves very well to website company logos and icons. A compressed format of SVG also exists which uses the extension SVGZ and employs the GZIP compression algorithm.
