What is a DXF File?

DXF is short for Drawing Interchange Format or Drawing Exchange Format. Commonly known as AutoCAD DXF format, is a CAD data file format. It was developed by Autodesk to enable data interoperability between AutoCAD and other programs. DXF file format was first introduced in 1982. The key purpose of this format was to produce the exact representation of AutoCAD native DWG files on other applications. For many years, the importing process of DXF files had been very difficult because of the unavailability of specifications of the format. Presently the format specifications are available as PDF but this format is rarely used in AutoCAD applications.
