CAD file formats are used by the designers or architects to create drawings in various industries such as construction, automobile, hardware, and etc. DWG and DXF are the most widely used CAD formats, however, you need a dedicated software to view the content in DWG and DXF files. In order to tackle this limitation, you can convert the CAD drawings to PDF format. In this article, you will learn how to automate CAD to PDF conversion and convert DWG and DXF files to PDF using Java.
DWG and DXF are the popular file formats used to store data as well as metadata of the CAD designs.
