Description AutoCAD DXF (Drawing Interchange Format, or Drawing Exchange Format) is a CAD data file format developed by Autodesk for enabling data interoperability between AutoCAD and other programs. Versions of AutoCAD from Release 10 and up support both ASCII and binary forms of DXF. Earlier versions support only ASCII. Hewlett-Packard printer control language (also known as HPGL) that is used by HP and other manufacturers plotters which draw pictures with lines instead of dots. HGL files include several lines of setup commands followed by a list of printing commands that describe what and how shoud be printed on the page. These files are usually saved with HPGL file extension.
Technical details As AutoCAD has become more powerful, supporting more complex object types, DXF has become less useful. Certain object types, including ACIS solids and regions, are not documented. DXF coordinates are always without dimensions so that the reader or user needs to know the drawing unit or has to extract it from the textual comments in the sheets.
