DWG Import Export 200

File format compatibility

DWG file import and export

Rhino can import and export AutoCAD drawing (.dwg) files. DWG is the native format for several CAD packages.


  • Just open the .dwg file in Rhino. The lines, curves and annotations can be added to the current document.
  • The 2D lines imported can be used to create Lands Design elements, Rhino surfaces and polysurfaces using the extrusion commands.


  • After creating a project with Lands Design and generating the documentation drawings you can export all the geometry to AutoCAD.


  • Create, save, export, and import AutoCAD export schemes.

Other file compatibility

Besides .dwg, Rhino can import and export files to other file types to exchange models with other software for different purposes.
