What is a DXF File DXF is short form for Data Exchange Format or Data Interchange format. Autodesk developed this format to be actually used for CAD or Computer Aided Design. This format was developed as a universal format to ensure that the AutoCAD files and documents can be opened easily with other programs as well. Is there any similarity between DXF and DWG file A DXF file is quite similar to the DWG file. But unlike DWG file DXF file format is more compatible with other programs too because this is ASCII based file. The origin of DXF file The DXF file format was first introduced as a part of AutoCAD 1.0 in 1982. The 10 th release of AutoCAD in year 1988 supported both ASCII and binary forms of DXF while the earlier versions were limited to support only ASCII. Now DXF has become a vector format that has been widely supported and used in the world today. Parsing DXF Files DXF files are actually very easy to parse because of the fact that they are text bases and tagged as well. This makes DXF files human readable. DXF Files Working With CNC Machines You can produce the polyline DXF files by exporting your splined DXF files from AutoCAD in a R14 or 2000 DXF format. These polyline DXF files can work well with the CNC machines for the laser and plasma cutting. In fact these files are being used in many CNC machine to cut paths. DXF files contain the cut ready designs that can be used for the CNC machines such as Plasma Cutter and Laser Cutter to be used for the purposes like home décor garden décor etc. Check this out: CNC Art Files
