                    What is DWG?

                    DWG refers to both a technology environment and .dwg files, the native file format for Autodesk’s AutoCAD? software.

                    AutoCAD .dwg file format

                    Autodesk created .dwg in 1982 with the very first launch of AutoCAD software. DWG files contain all the information that a user enters in a CAD drawing. This data can include:

                    • Designs
                    • Geometric data
                    • Maps and photos

                    The .dwg file format is one of the most commonly used design data formats, found in nearly every design environment.

                    • DWG technology environment

                      The DWG technology environment contains the capability to mold, render, draw, annotate, and measure. While commonly associated with AutoCAD, DWG technology is an integral part of many of our CAD products.

                    • TrustedDWG

                      TrustedDWG? technology lets you know of potential incompatibility when a file was not last saved by an Autodesk software, and identifies files that might not be supported by Autodesk software.
