Convert DWT to SVG

A DWT file is an AutoCAD drawing template file that is used as a starter for creating drawings that can be saved as DWG files. Such template files provide initial settings such as unit types, the precision required, title blocks, layer names, line types, and other similar information for lateral conversion to proper drawing files. Both AutoCAD and CoreCAD can be used to read the template files and utilize them further.
