Convert DWF to PSD

Design Web Format (DWF) represents 2D/3D drawing in compressed format for viewing, reviewing, or printing design files. It contains graphics and text as part of design data and reduces the size of the file due to its compressed format. The reduced file size makes the distribution and communication of rich design data efficient. DWF doesn’t require the recipient to know about the usage of CAD software that created the original drawing.

Steps to convert DWF to PSD in C#

GroupDocs.Conversion allows developers to convert the DWF file to PSD format in an easy and intuitive way just using a few lines of code as described below:

  • Create an instance of Converter class and pass source DWF file path as a constructor parameter. You may specify absolute or relative file path as per your requirements.
  • Declare SavePageStream delegate, which should provide a stream to store converted page of DWF document.
  • Create an instance of ImageConvertOptions class and set Format property to GroupDocs.Conversion.FileTypes.ImageFileType.Psd.
  • Call Converter class Convert method and pass the filename for the converted PSD file and the ImageConvertOptions object from the previous step as parameters.
// Load the source DWF file
using (Converter converter = new Converter("sample.dwf"))
{
    string outputFileTemplate = Path.Combine(outputFolder, "converted-page-{0}.psd");
    GroupDocs.Conversion.Contracts.SavePageStream getPageStream = page => new FileStream(string.Format(outputFileTemplate, page), FileMode.Create);

    // Set the convert options for PSD format
    var options = new ImageConvertOptions { Format = GroupDocs.Conversion.FileTypes.ImageFileType.Psd };   
    // Convert to PSD format
    converter.Convert(getPageStream, options);
}
