DWG is a native format for several CAD applications as they store two or three-dimensional design data and metadata. Some applications or workflow requirements may need to convert a DWG file to a DWF file. Accordingly, this article explains how to convert a DWG file to a DWF format programmatically in Java.
DWG to DWF Conversion – Java API Installation
Aspose.CAD for Java API can be used to work with DWG or other file formats. You can access the API by downloading its JAR file from the New Releases section or from Aspose Repository with the below configurations in the pom.xml file of your application:
<repositories> <repository> <id>AsposeJavaAPI</id> <name>Aspose Java API</name> <url>http://repository.aspose.com/repo/</url> </repository> </repositories>
<dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>com.aspose</groupId> <artifactId>aspose-cad</artifactId> <version>21.11</version> </dependency> </dependencies>
Convert DWG to DWF Programmatically in Java
You can convert a DWG file to DWF file format with the steps listed below:
- Load the input DWG file with the Image class.
- Cast the Image class object to CadImage type.
- Convert DWG to DWF file using the Save method.
The following code snippet explains how to convert a DWG file to DWF format programmatically in Java:
