DWG file import and export
Rhino can import and export AutoCAD drawing (.dwg) files. DWG is the native format for several CAD packages.
- Just open the .dwg file in Rhino. Lines, curves and annotations can be added to the current document.
- The 2D lines imported can be used to create VisualARQ objects, Rhino surfaces and polysurfaces using the extrusion commands.
- After creating a project with Rhino and VisualARQ and generating the documentation drawings such as the floor plans, sections, elevations, etc. you can export all the geometry to AutoCAD. Read more about how to do it here.
- Create, save, export, and import AutoCAD export schemes.
VisualARQ includes a built-in IFC import and export plug-in, which makes it possible to exchange VisualARQ and Rhino models with other AEC software packages using IFC 2x3 files.
Other file format compatibility
Besides .dwg and .IFC, Rhino can import and export files to other file types to exchange models with other software for different purposes.
