Use Your CAD Drawings Here, There & Everywhere

Explore what's possible with your drawings both within the AutoCAD® design environment and in external applications using FME's broad format support and enhanced transformation tools.

Convert data from 400+ formats for use in AutoCAD including:

  • GIS applications: ArcGIS, MapInfo, Smallworld
  • raster images
  • databases: Oracle, MS SQL Server, PostGIS
  • Excel spreadsheets
  • MicroStation and other CAD programs
  • BIM
  • and more
exchange data between AutoCAD and many other applications

Preserve Rich Details

FME's unique transformation tools preserve the details of the incoming dataset by mapping them into their equivalent place in the AutoCAD data model. For example, convert GIS features and attributes seamlessly into AutoCAD blocks, annotation and symbology. And you can be sure that the dataset was transformed properly by using FME's data validation capabilities that let you know if and where any problems exist before you begin using it in AutoCAD.

Watch a demonstration of how to use FME to translate GIS data for use in AutoCAD.

Use AutoCAD Designs Practically Anywhere

Get more mileage out of AutoCAD DWG™ files by transforming them for use in other applications. Just as FME is able to preserve details when moving data into AutoCAD, FME's tools losslessly restructure DWG files to suit the exact requirements of the destination system.
