AutoCAD (from version 2021)


Described are export settings for the CAD system “AutoCAD” from version 2021. With the recommended settings you ensure that the drawing file can be read by infra CONVERT in the best possible way. Export in IGES format is not supported by “AutoCAD 2021”.

Basically, it should be noted that fonts must be installed on the respective PC when processing drawing files in an exchange format, such as DXF, DWG or PDF.
SeeDealing with missing fonts

If an export result is not satisfactory despite the configuration recommendations, we will be happy to support you directly.
