Convert DXF to SVG C#

Being able to convert data from one format to another is an essential skill in the field of CAD (computer-aided design) and vector graphics. In this case study, we will explore how to convert DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) files to SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format using the C# DXF to SVG converter library. By leveraging the power of this library, we can streamline the DXF to SVG conversion process, providing designers, engineers, and professionals with an efficient solution.

Here is the outline of the sections given in this case study:

Problem Statement:

VectorTech Solutions, an engineering firm, frequently works with DXF files and requires the conversion of these files to SVG format for improved visualization and streamlined further processing. The manual conversion process currently in place is time-consuming, error-prone, and adversely affects productivity. To overcome these challenges and enhance efficiency, VectorTech Solutions seeks an automated solution utilizing the Conholdate.Total for .NET (C# DXF to SVG converter library). This solution should seamlessly convert DXF files to SVG, ensuring precision, accuracy, and maintaining the superior quality of the vector graphics.

Note: We wanted to clarify that “VectorTech Solutions” is a fictional name used as an example in our recent discussions. It does not represent an actual company or organization in the industry. Apologies for any confusion caused.


To tackle this issue, we opted for Conholdate.Total for .NET, an extensive document processing library that provides a wide array of functionalities, including the conversion of DXF to SVG. By leveraging the capabilities offered by this library, we can automate the process of converting DXF files to SVG format, guaranteeing outcomes that are both efficient and dependable.


Installing the C# DXF to SVG Converter Library:

We will use Conholdate.Total for .NET to convert DXF to SVG programmatically. You can download the DLL or install this DXF to SVG converter library using NuGet.

Install-Package Conholdate.Total 

Convert DXF to SVG using C#:

Following are the steps to convert DXF to SVG with C#:

  1. Load the DXF file using the Converter class, specifying the file path.
  2. Obtain the conversion options for SVG format using the GetPossibleConversions() method of the Converter class.
  3. Convert the loaded DXF file to SVG format using the Convert() method of the Converter class, providing the output file path and the SVG conversion options.

Below is the sample code that follows the steps mentioned earlier:

// Load DXF file
var converter = new GroupDocs.Conversion.Converter("input.dxf");
// Set conversion parameters for SVG format
var convertOptions = converter.GetPossibleConversions()["svg"].ConvertOptions;
// Convert to SVG format
converter.Convert("output.svg", convertOptions);
