Convert your ICO file to DXF

Create vector image files with our easy-to-use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a ICO (Icon) file and, from this, create a vector-based DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) file that you can then download and edit within vector file editors or use for high-definition printing applications. If you have multiple ICO files to convert, then our tool can also batch convert ICO files too. Currently, our tool supports up to 25 conversions at a time.

Options are available to specify or remove a background color if the source ICO image does not contain a transparent background. Our tool can attempt to determine the background color automatically, or you can manually specify the background color to remove.

How to Convert your ICO to DXF Online?

Select your Options

Set the dimensions and other options, and click the "Convert to DXF" button to convert your ICO to DXF.

Download your DXF

Click the download link once completed to receive your DXF file.

ICO to DXF Conversion Options

Mode

The Mode setting is used by the tool to inform it of the best way to vectorize the image by providing it with clues as to the type of image being submitted. The Auto mode attempts to find the most suitable settings for the image uploaded. There are, however, other options to help fine-tune this process, which we explain in more detail in the Tool Options section below.

Hole Reduction

With this setting, it is possible to reduce the inclusion of small holes within the final vector file caused by small, contrasting areas of the source ICO file, which can be useful in situations where the source image has not been optimized for use with the tool.

Merge Similar Colors

Use this value to merge similar colors; this is useful if the image is of low quality. A higher number can help reduce the effects of anti-aliasing in the ICO image.

Remove Background

When this option is enabled, the tool will automatically attempt to make the background of your image transparent.

Specify Color

Manually specify your image background color rather than our tool trying to automatically work it out.

Color

If the tool is unable to identify the background and you know the background color, you can specify it here.

Tolerance

This value can be adjusted to control the background removal tolerance. The higher the value, the more background is removed.

A higher value is useful for creating smoother results if your image is anti-aliased.

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.

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.
