The shx file extension is associated with AutoCAD, a CAD development platform, developed and sold by Autodesk, Inc.
The shx file contains compiled shape data (building blocks, fonts) in form of the machine language compiled version of an *.shp file.
It loads much faster than an ASCII file, and all shape files are compiled for use with AutoCAD.
All the vector fonts used by AutoCAD (romans, txt, and so on) in CAD projects are compiled shape files with names like romans.shx.
OpenType fonts (*.otf and sometimes stored as *.ttf) are not supported.
