A DWG file extension is a Drawing Database of 2D and/or 3D drawings that are created within the AutoCAD application. A DWG file contains vector images and other metadata that describe other contents of the file. The DWG extension is related to the DXF format, which is basically an ASCII version of a DWG file. Besides AutoCAD and other professional CAD applications, a DWG file can also be opened by third-party software.
