File Converter
General Info


VectorDraw File Converter is an end-user application utility that gives you the ability to convert the most commonly used drawing documents (.DWG, .DGN and .DXF files) to the new VectorDraw format standards (VDML, VDCL) and vice versa. The utility exports the above graphic files to PDF, SVG and .DWF file formats. VectorDraw File Converter can also undertake multiple file conversions (e.g. *.dwg to *.vdml or *.dxf and vise versa). VectorDraw FileConverter Full has also the ability to export drawings into PDF documents.

Using this application, you can also choose the version of the format in which the drawing document will be exported (e.g. .DWG 2010 file, VDCL, .DXF version 14, .DGN file version 8 etc)

 Using the FileConverter Full then you can easily convert a DGN file directly in a DWG file. The Lite version cannot do that in one step. You will have to convert the .DGN file to a VDCL/VDML file (step 1) and then this new VDCL/VDML file to a .DWG file (step 2)
