What is a DXF file?
DXF stands for Drawing Interchange Format or Drawing Exchange Format. This vector image format was developed by Autodesk for containing CAD (Computer Aided Design) data for their native software, AutoCAD. DXF files are more flexible for sharing CAD drawings in cross platforms because of their ASCII (text) based structure. Almost similar to the popular DWG file, DXF files are rarely used by AutoCAD applications presently. But you can easily run and make modifications to DXF files with the CorelDRAW Editor from Corel.
