LibreDWG

Read and Write AutoCAD DWG files

LibreDWG is a free C library to read and write DWG files. This program is part of the GNU project, released under the aegis of GNU. It is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 3 (or at you option any later version).

DWG is a file format created in the 70's for the emerging CAD applications. Currently it is the native file format of AutoCAD, a proprietary CAD program developed by AutoDesk.

LibreDWG is a fork from LibDWG due to its usage of Esperanto, which we think is not the best strategy for a free software project which aims to get lots of contributors. LibreDWG is written in English. Among the example applications we wrote using LibreDWG is an generic reader to some formats, a writer from some formats, a rewriter, i.e saveas tool, and some initial SVG and PS conversion.

Currently LibreDWG can reliably read r13-r2018 DWG and write DXF formats, and can write r13-r2000 DWG formats. Work on pre-r13 is making good progress. DXF reading is also in progress.
