This chapter is about the AutoCAD DWG/DXF reader/writer and AutoCAD feature types supported by FME. For AutoCAD DWF information, please refer to the Autodesk AutoCAD DWF Reader/Writer.

FME can read and write files used by Autodesk® AutoCAD® and compatible systems. AutoCAD drawing files consist of drawing settings and configuration, as well as a series of entities, or graphic elements, organized into layers.

FME provides broad support for many AutoCAD entity types and options. FME reads and writes AutoCAD file versions up to and including 2013 (2018 for the AutoCAD RealDWG Reader/Writer), produced by any version of the AutoCAD collection of applications.

When AutoCAD data is output, header information may be copied from a supplied template, or prototype, file.
