If you are a designer you are bound to find yourself in situations when you have to convert your DWG file to DXF format. Usually the circumstances are the same, the designer you are sharing your image works on a different software which does not support this file format.
Sometimes it is also important to convert files into simpler formats because the complex file formats are often not compatible with all programs. In order to avoid such inconveniences, you need to convert your files into simpler entities.

What is DXF?
As the name suggests (drawing exchange format) DXF was invented to make it easy for CAD programs to transfer data. Unlike DWG, DXF is not a proprietary software which is why it can also be called the universal software since it is compatible with a wide range of software packages.
What is DWG?
DWG stands for ‘drawing’. It is the file format for AutoCAD drawing files. However, since it is a proprietary file format, the specifications cannot be publically documented. A DWG file stores all forms of image data and programs which can read this file format include IntelliCAD, Corel CAD, AutoCAD and Adobe illustrator.
