QCAD file compatibility

Post by NPD » Thu Jul 02, 2020 2:43 pm

How compatible are QCAD file formats AutoCAD and other CAD apps? I saved a file in QCAD 3.24 in R27 DWG format. I sent the file to a vendor and they said they could not open it in AutoCAD? What should I be aware of when creating files in QCAD for use in AutoCAD?

There are different versions of the DXF/DWG format. You need to check what version of Autocad they have and then export in QCAD for that version.
