File / Plot

Engineered for professional

Common ACAD file format

Comprehensive DWG editing

GstarCAD supports DWG formats (R12-2018), including DXF/DWT/DWS than not only ensures compliance of your older drawing data but also avoids complications of cleaning and converting.


Unsurpassed compatibility

Whether you customize an existing User Interface (CUI, CUIx), Drawing hatch pattern (PAT), Line type (LIN), Dimension Style (DIM), Plot Style (CTB, STB) in ACAD.


Import and export file formats keeps connectivity across project team involved. GstarCAD is able to Import: WMF, SAT and 3DS file formats. And export file formats: DWF, DWFX, WMF, SAT, STL, EPS, DXX, BMP.

External Object

External references like DWG, DWF, DWFX, DGN, PDF and raster images can be opened, inserted and managed from the external reference palette.

When attach a file as an xref, the link that referenced drawing to the current drawing.

Any changes to the referenced drawing are displayed in the current drawing when it is opened or reloaded.

You can easily add raster image, OLE object (charts, shapes, tables or more), Windows Metafile, and Drawing Exhange binary.

PDF / DWF Underlay

DWF underlay is similar to attached raster images in that they provide visual content but also support object snapping and clipping. Unlike external references, underlays cannot be bound to the drawing.
You can reference and place a PDF as underlay in drawing files the same as you do raster image files. You can adjust the underlay properties like contrast, fade, monochrome, and colors for background. latest GstarCAD support the insertion of one page or many pages from the PDF file.

continuously improves
in DGN compatibility.

implemented the full DGN files support and related commands such as DGNIMPORT, DGNATTACH, DGNADJUST, DGNMAPING, etc. Now you can import and attach as underlay a Microstation native format.



DWG to PDF build-in driver with default vector resolution seted at 300 dpi and maximun resolution output upto 2400 dpi.

block attribute information

The new added EATTEXT command can not only extract block attribute information, also the object’s general attribute, for example the area of circle or square. The operation is easy to use and can extract files in various formats including *.xls.

CAD to Excel

CAD Table to Excel function is fast, easy and direct transformation of drawing tables to excel sheet.


Plot Styles

A plot style is an object property, similar to linetype and color. A plot style can be assigned to an object or assigned to a layer. Using plot styles gives you great flexibility because you can set them to override other object properties or turn off the override as needed.

CTB Editor

You can add, delete, rename, and copy plot styles in a named plot style table using the Plot Style Table Editor. The Plot Style Table Editor is also used to change plot style settings for both named and color-dependent plot style tables.

Batch Publish

Publishing an electronic drawing set as a DWF, DWFx, PDF file saves time and increases productivity by providing accurate, compressed representations of drawings in a file that is easy to distribute and view. This also maintains the integrity of your original drawings.



eTransmit provides a compact way to package a set of files for Internet transmission. When you select a set of drawing files in a transmittal package, it automatically includes all related dependent files such as xrefs and font files.

DWG Convert

Convert one or a bunch of selected drawing files to another DWG version available. The newly generated file can overwrite the original file, and it can also be compressed into a self-extracting EXE file or a ZIP file to facilitate batch format conversion of the entire project drawing.


Data Security

Password-based encryption helps secure drawing data when you collaborate on projects. With a digital signature, you can collaborate more easily with others on projects. Recipients of drawings are provided with reliable information about who created a set of drawings and whether they were modified since they were digitally signed.


Batch Purge

Batpurge tool doesn’t need to open files. It executes the command of purge directly, which makes it run with very high efficiency.


Drawing Recovery Manager work as rescue tool for important project due to a power surge, the computer restarted or the program terminated unexpectedly.

Drawing Compare

Compare drawing files of different version to identify the design changes. Colors are used to mark changed objects between old and new drawing files.

Sheet Set Manager

Managing large sets of drawings manually can be complicated and time consuming. With the Sheet Set Manager, you can manage drawings as sheet sets plus manage and edit data, automate drawing set up, provide easy access to department drawings, simplify publishing/printing of the entire design set.
