ExtensionSmallImg What is .dwg file?

DWG stands for drawing. The DWG format is licensed to Autodesk for their AutoCAD application. These are the drawings created with AutoCAD, a professional CAD program. It contains vector image data and metadata that describes the contents of the file. DWG is a proprietary format and can only be created in AutoCAD. Other CAD programs can usually import it, but not create it. To be flawlessly used in other CAD programs, DWG files are often exported to DXF interchange format. DWG files can be opened using Autodesk's free DWG TrueView program on Mac. They can also be opened by other third-party applications that support the DWG format. Important: Several variations of the DWG format have been published by AutoCAD. While all those formats are similar, their file structures are slightly different. Therefore, third-party CAD programs may be able to open only some DWG files.
