DWG Import Export 200

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.



  • Create, save, export, and import AutoCAD export schemes.

IFC Import Export 200


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.
