DWG CAD Format

DWG Converter

DWG is a file format that was first developed in the late 1970s and licensed for AutoCAD, a computer-aided design (CAD) program by AutoDesk. The format’s name DWG is short for ‘drawing’ because the files are typically used for creating technical drawings or blueprints by engineers, architects, builders, or designers. Although the format is over 40 years old, it’s still considered an industry standard. DWG files usually comprise 2D or 3D vector graphics, in addition to metadata.

While DWG was developed for AutoCAD, you can usually also open and edit these files with other CAD programs like CATIA and SolidWorks, as well as with CorelCAD and Adobe Illustrator. Professionals creating or editing DWG files will usually convert them into PDF if they need to share them with others who don’t have specialist software or aren’t CAD trained.

JPG Image Format

JPG Converter

JPG, or JPEG, is one of the most widely used digital image formats. JPG is a universal format which can be opened by almost all image-viewing or -editing programs, by web browsers, and by certain other apps, and they’re supported by most devices. JPGs are 2D pixel-based ‘raster’ images, which makes them better for photographs or scans, rather than digital illustrations which are often better as ‘vector’ images. Many cameras, smartphones, and basic photo or drawing programs will automatically save into JPG format. However, you can usually adjust settings to save into other formats if needed.

JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, which is the name of the committee that standardised the format. JPG is a ‘lossy’ format, meaning that it is compressed to save storage space and make it easier to share. This compression can affect quality, but this loss of quality isn’t noticeable to most users.
