What is DWG?

DWG is a binary file format used for storing two and three dimensional design data and metadata. It is used for computer-aided design (CAD), a technology employed in drafting, technical drawing, engineering, architecture and other industries that use blueprints, symbols and/or highly detailed graphic images to convey information.

  • RasterMaster, Snowbound’s Imaging and Conversion SDK, provides document imaging functionality enabling developers to build important features into their applications such as document viewing, conversion, annotation and manipulation. It supports numerous document and image formats across a variety of platforms. DWG is currently available in Windows and .NET.
  • VirtualViewer, Snowbound’s powerful web viewer enables you to view, convert, manipulate, annotate, and print DWG files through a standard Web browser. Because our VirtualViewer is developed from our robust imaging SDK, the viewer family supports all of the file formats offered in our Java library. VirtualViewer offers you the ability to view multiple document and image formats, including DWG, through a universal viewer. DWG is also available currently in VirtualViewer HTML5 for .NET.

Important: Avoid surprises and delays. Snowbound Software recommends that, as part of your evaluation process, you test your own sample documents against our products. Though we've been in the document business for almost 20 years, modifications to document formats occur from time to time. Often they don't conform to specifications, but you may find it important to work with them. Snowbound, unlike most of our competitors, develops it own technology. If in the rare case you come across a problem or non-conforming document or image, we can often quickly fix it.
