Description DWG is a proprietary binary file format used for storing two- and three- dimensional design data and metadata. It is the native format for several CAD packages including DraftSight, AutoCAD, IntelliCAD, Caddie and Open Design Alliance compliant applications. In addition, DWG is supported non-natively by many other CAD applications. Developed by Microsoft, the .wmf format is a proprietary graphics file type. WMF was first designed to act as a format that allowed vector graphics to be converted to bitmap images and vice versa. The WMF acted as a bridge file, enabling compatibility between the two formats. As new platform independent image formats such as JPEG were developed the need for bridging files such as WMF was removed. The most well known use of the file type is for the early incarnations of clip art that were bundled with Microsoft Office.
Technical details DWG contains all the pieces of information a user enters, such as: Designs, Geometric data, Maps, Photos. The .dwg file format is one of the most commonly used design data formats, found in nearly every design environment. The DWG technology environment contains the capability to mold, render, draw, annotate, and measure. A .wmf file may contain both vector graphics and bitmap images to enable portability between two incompatible platforms. The file contains a list of instructions that allows the graphics device to understand how to render the file. It is a 16 bit file.
