Convert AutoCAD drawing to Microsoft Visio diagram document.

We have found one software suitable in our database for this conversion.

dwg to vsd conversion represent basically an effort to create a Visio drawing (.vsd) or diagram from vector graphics saved in AutoCAD format (.dwg).

You can convert CAD objects on individual layers into Visio shapes, and then modify or delete them. When you convert drawing from AutoCAD DWG or DXF format, you convert the last saved spatial view of the CAD drawing.

This can be done in Visio by right-clicking on the CAD drawing, pointing to CAD Drawing Object, and then clicking Convert. Just keep in mind that latest versions of MS Visio no longer can save in VSD format, so you would have to use some previous version for this.

The table with program actions contains information about what each program is capable of doing with their files. This may be a good pointer for further searches for certain file conversions and help you find the converter you are looking for if our search result is insufficient for you. However, it is far from perfect and may sometimes show results which are not really usable because of the nature of the software handles the files. So a conversion that appears as possible, just because of matched actions, may in fact not be possible.

Files with dwg extension are used for the original CAD format originally introduced in Autodesk AutoCAD. The latest version of DWG format is usuaually proprietary and can only be created in AutoCAD. Other CAD programs can usually import it but not create its proprietary form. Because of this, DWGs are often exported to DXF interchange format so that they can be seamlessly used in other CAD programs.


Files with vsd extension can be most notably found as flowcharts and diagrams created in older versions of Microsoft Visio program.
