What is DWG?

DWG stands for DraWinG; files created using computer aided design software use the DWG file extension. The DWG file format is sometimes mistakenly thought of as an image format but it is in reality information that stores 2D and 3D design data. The data plots the image in terms of points on a three or two dimensional graph. The data mathematically describes the ‘image’ that’s been created by a computer aided design program or application. DWG file viewers translate this data into the image that you see when you view a DWG file. Computer aided design programs are used by designers and engineers to create diagrams and document complex mechanical designs that offer great clarity on the way an object functions. AutoCAD is the most popular of these programs and it uses the DWG extension.
