Data Exchange

Reliable Data Exchange

For data exchange with other CAD applications, CAD6studio uses the widely spread DWG and DXF file formats. Those import and export filters are constantly maintained, extremely reliable and up-to-date.

The data exchange via DWG and DXF supports all complex drawing structures, such as mapping of model space into paper space (“pages”), layer definitions with control of the object's display via layer color and line pattern, blocks, references to external drawings, sorting tables for the object order, all polyline types, and 32 bit colors including transparency.

Using the also available import/export of SHP files, the geometry data will be converted to objects in the drawing area that are linked to the GIS datasets in the internal CAD6 database.

The HP-GL/2 format is mainly used to control cutting plotters and 2D production machines, respectively. CAD6studio supports all relevant object types of that format.

Furthermore, it features the import and export of all common bitmap file formats such as JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and BMP, the output of SVG files, plus in the 3D part the import and export of STL data and the export of U3D data and 3MF data.

For machine controllers in the industry sector, CAD6industrie offers the additional ability to create special CNC data using post-processors that can be created and edited using a macro language.

Please note that most of the filters described here are not part of CAD6starter.
