Part or object created with Autodesk Inventor, a program for designing three-dimensional prototypes; is composed of one 2D or 3D object that can be combined with other parts in an assembly (.IAM) file.
AutoCAD DXF (Drawing Interchange Format, or Drawing Exchange formal) is a CAD file format created by Autodesk for AutoCAD more compatible with other programs.
DXF was initially intended to represent exact copy of the data in the AutoCAD native format DWG (Drawing).
It can’t hurt if we mention that DXF coordinates come always without dimensions so the user needs to know the drawing unit or has to extract it from the textual comments in the sheets.
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
