CategoryCAD File
DescriptionThe DXF file format was created by Autodesk in 1982 and the intention was to create a format that was independent of CAD applications and therefore eased the difficulties of sharing files created by different applications. This was particularly important for early versions of CAD as reverse engineering of the closely guarded DWG format was limited. However in recent years the usefulness of DXF format has reduced due to DXF not being able to support more advanced CAD elements such as dynamic blocks. The market leading popularity of AutoCAD has also reduced the requirement for an application independent format.

Technical DetailsDXF files are organised in way that allows the files to be opened by a normal text editor application.vA DXF file has a common format containing a number of sections. These include the Header which contains file property information, Classes, Tables, Entities, Blocks and Thumbnail Image section. The data contained within a DXF is known as tagged data which means that the tags identify how the data should be interpreted. For example there are a large number of group codes related to the creation of an ellipse. Various group codes allow for the definition of the start and end points, centre point and extrusion directions.

DescriptionThe GIF file format is a type of bitmap image and has become popular due to the growth of the internet. This file format supports up to 8 bits per pixel therefore giving an image the ability to contain 256 distinct colours chosen from the 24-bit RGB colour space. It also supports animations and whenever you see a logo or other sharp edged line art then you are probably dealing with the GIF format. It uses the lossless data compression technique which reduces the file size without any impact on the quality.

Technical DetailsThe GIF file format was invented by Compuserve for their online service, but they made the specifications publicly available. GIFs are able to hold multiple bitmaps of up to 256 colors each, using LZW (Lempel Zev Welch - a simple form of file compression that removes inefficiencies in the data storage without losing data or distorting the image) compressed raster data to minimize file sizes. The idea is to lessen the amount of colours in a GIF image to the minimum number necessary and to therefore remove stray colors that are not required to represent the image. A GIF graphic is unable to have more than 256 colors but it can have fewer colors, down to the minimum of two (black and white). Images with fewer colors will compress more efficiently under LZW compression.
