What is CAD file?

What is a DXF file?
DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) files are a type of 2D CAD files. It is one of the most common file types for professionals in industries requiring such formats. One can think of the DXF like a basic .txt file in the context of basic documents. It was originally developed by AutoDesk just like DWG which is another very popular CAD file format for real estate professionals. However, unlike files in DWG format, which is proprietary to AutoCAD and specific compatible software, DXF files are much more 'open' and are cross-compatible with mostly all software used to modify CAD files. This allows for collaboration between different people without having to worry about file format and software compatibility and reliability.
