FME natively supports reading and writing of AutoCAD DWG and many other formats and applications including ArcGIS, MapInfo, MicroStation, JPEG, PDF, CSV, KML, GML, XML, and many more.
See If Your Format is Supported
FME gives you the tools to share AutoCAD designs for use by others. Whether they want to use it in a GIS application or view it as a detailed PDF, FME can transform DWG files to meet the requirements of the target application and preserve detailed information.
Demo: How to Convert DWG to SHP
AutoCAD has its own unique data model that requires more than simple translation to DWG when bringing in external data. FME’s transformation tools support many sophisticated manipulations that prepare any data for the AutoCAD environment, with specialization in GIS. FME lets you turn GIS structures into geometries, and attributes into annotation and symbology, so details are preserved and the transformed data works perfectly in AutoCAD.
Tutorial: How to Convert SHP to DWG
AutoCAD is design and drafting software used primarily by architects, project managers, and engineers for the creation of accurate digital drawings and models of their plans.
