Validate AutoCAD Designs

FME can be used to check the quality of geometry and attributes in an AutoCAD dataset, either as a separate workflow or from within a translation. Validate AutoCAD designs against set specifications, for example those governed by regulatory standards, or against user-defined tests. FME can also be used to repair invalid geometries should some be identified in the validation process.

Share AutoCAD Data with Anyone

FME gives you the tools to share AutoCAD designs for use by others. Whether they want to use it in a GIS application or view it as a detailed PDF, FME can transform DWG files to meet the requirements of the target application and preserve detailed information.

Transform GIS Data for Use in AutoCAD with FME

AutoCAD has its own unique data model that requires more than simple translation to DWG when bringing in external data. FME’s transformation tools support many sophisticated manipulations that prepare any data for the AutoCAD environment, with specialization in GIS. FME lets you turn GIS structures into geometries, and attributes into annotation and symbology, so details are preserved and the transformed data works perfectly in AutoCAD.
