DwgList 2020 Technical Documentation

Concepts

DwgList 2020 is designed to extract information from AutoCAD DWG and DXF files. In most cases this is just extraction of information as it appears in the AutoCAD drawings. In each case the information will be output either to the screen or to a XML or Text file (depending on the parameters). This information can include:

  • External References and their status
  • Raster References (what images are used in the drawing) and their status
  • PDF Underlays and their status
  • Layers
  • Text
  • Fonts used and their status

External References

DwgList 2020 will output a list of all External Reference files (AutoCAD DWG or DXF files that are referenced into the main drawing) listing the name and path name along with whether they could be found.

Raster References

DwgList 2020 will output a list of all Raster Reference files (raster image files, usually in TIFF, JPG, PNG or GIF format, that are referenced into the main drawing) listing the name and path name along with whether they could be found.

PDF Underlays

DwgList 2020 will output a list of all PDF Underlays files (Adobe PDF files that are referenced into the main drawing) listing the name and path name along with whether they could be found.

Layers

DwgList 2020 will extract all layer information the AutoCAD DWG or DXF file.

Text Extraction

DwgList 2020 will extract all text, both Text (Simple Note) and MText (Note) from the AutoCAD DWG or DXF file. The text will be output along with the position and rotation of the text.

Fonts

DwgList 2020 will output a list of all Font files (either SHX or TrueType fonts that are used in the drawing) listing the name and whether they could be found.
