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/use 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/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.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an DXF file from a ICO file.
Click the "Upload a File" button and select a ICO to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.
Set the dimensions and other options and click the "Convert to DXF" button to convert your ICO to DXF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your ICO file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the ICO to DXF conversion has completed, you can download your DXF file straight away.
We aim to process all ICO to DXF 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 and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the ICO file you submit to us. The resulting DXF file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our ICO to DXF tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our ICO conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
The ICO file is an image format which 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 2 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.
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.
