What is the best converter used for converting dwl format to dwg file format.

Although both .dwl and .dwg files originate from AutoCAD, dwl to dwg conversion seems unlikely. This mainly due the fact that .dwl files are just lock files and not CAD files, these files are generated when drawing database is opened so the file cannot be accidentally edited by someone else.

Files with dwl extension can be typically found as lock files generated for drawings databases opened in AutoCAD CAD/CAM software from Autodesk.


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.

A dwg file extension is related to the BravoDRAFT an old CAD tool. A dwg file stores CAD drawing. It is not compatible with AutoCAD DWG format.
