Learn how to convert AutoCAD to DAE with CAD Exchanger
AutoCAD is a software application for CAD and drafting built on Autodesk’s proprietary kernel named Shapemanager. Developed by Autodesk, AutoCAD was first to run on microcomputers with internal graphics controllers. As it is available on thirteen different languages, AutoCAD is widely used by architects, project managers engineers, graphic designers, city planners and other professionals all over the globe.
AutoCAD enables professionals to draft and edit 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces and meshes, annotate drawings with text, leaders, dimensions and tables, customize wit add-on apps and API.
There are different versions of AutoCAD. AutoCAD LT is the lower cost version, with limited capabilities. AutoCAD 360 is an account-based mobile and web application. Its users can view, edit and share files via mobile device and web. To add to it, students can use free student versions of AutoCAD, which are almost identical to the full commercial one.
DAE is an interactive 3D file format used for exchanging digital assets between various 3D modeling systems and game engines.
The DAE format was created using COLLADA XML architecture, which is an open standard for transmitting digital assets between graphic applications, and now owned and developed by Khronos Group.
The following software can be used to view, alter, and process DAE: Bentley Systems MicroStation, Autodesk AutoCAD, Autodesk 3ds Max with the ColladaMax plugin, and Autodesk Maya with the ColladaMaya plugin.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
