autoCad export?


(Surge) #1

Hi we are looking to display lots of 3d "products" on a website that I am building for one of my clients. My client works in 3d product design.

I came across sketchfab (while researching what was possible) and now I am interested to see if sketchfab can work with exported autocad files?

if it doesn't, is there a way to export from auto cad into another type of software and then re save the file into a supported format?

Thanks for your time.


Hi Surge,

Our supported formats:

From that list, we support STL, but there will not be any color/material information saved in STL.

I thought AutoCAD could export DWF?

You can also export STEP or IGES and use other software like FreeCAD or Rhino to convert to VRML or OBJ or something.

Ok thanks.
Is DWF the more supported format of the bunch?
If so I will ask my client to follow the DWF export tutorial you posted.


Our support for DWF isn't super robust, but it is the best option for AutoCAD.
