CAD File Format APIs


Open Source APIs to Read, Write & Convert CAD File Formats

Powerful Set of Open Source APIs that enables Software Developers to Read, Write, Edit, Convert & Manipulate CAD Drawings using .NET, Java, PHP, Perl, JavaScript & Python.

When it comes to design and engineering, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software is a must-have tool. Before, CAD was mainly controlled by pricey and exclusive options. But now, things are changing as open-source alternatives are stepping in. These open-source CAD libraries are not just budget-friendly but also allow for a lot of personalization. That’s why they’re gaining traction among hobbyists, experts, and businesses. When it comes to Open Source CAD APIs, they serve as connections that enable developers to communicate with CAD software through code. These APIs enable you to handle different CAD formats, such as VSD, VSDX, VSS, VSSX, VTX, VDX, VDW, VST, VSTX, and VSX. They come equipped with a range of tools and capabilities that empower you to generate, access, modify, and remove CAD files and diagrams using languages like Python, Node.js, Java, PHP, C#, Ruby, C++, Swift, Go, and many more. Being open source means their source code is available for anyone to use, modify, and distribute, promoting a collaborative development environment where improvements and customizations are encouraged and shared.
