Export DXF and DWG to Manufacturing

Effortlessly send design data directly to manufacturing with the help of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, to improve productivity whilst reducing costs and accelerating your time-to-market.


SOLIDWORKS enables you to easily send design information directly to manufacturing with automatic transfer of CNC-ready 2D DXF™ and 2D DWG™ file information straight from SOLIDWORKS 3D models, meaning you can output data without having to produce a 2D drawing.

Key Features

The key features of this capability include being able to:
  • Produce any view or planar face of a part as 2D DXF or 2D DWG
  • Drive water jet, plasma, CNC machining centres, and additional tools
  • Rapidly amend designs by controlling key design parameters.
  • Create 2D DXF or 2D DWG from sheet metal flat patterns
  • Manage export possibilities for different DXF/DWG version, font types, line styles, and so forth
