How to convert DWG to DDS:
1. Click "Choose Files" button to select multiple files on your computer or click the dropdown button to choose online file from URL, Google Drive or Dropbox. Image file size can be up to 200M. You can use file analyzer to get source image's detailed information such as image size, resolution, quality and transparent color.
2. Set target image format, image quality and image size. You can use the original image size or select "Change width and height" option and enter a custom image size. The format is [width]x[height], for example: 1920x1080. Image quality option only works on a few image formats such as JPG, WEBP or AVIF. The value ranges from 1 (lowest image quality and highest compression) to 100 (best quality but least effective compression). If this value is blank, the converter will use the estimated quality of your input image if it can be determined, otherwise 92. The target image format can be JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, HEIC, BMP, PS, PSD, WEBP, TGA, DDS, EXR, J2K, PNM, SVG, etc.

|Full name||CAD Drawing||Microsoft Direct Draw Surface|
|File extension||.dwg, .dws, .dwt||.dds|
|MIME||application/acad, application/x-acad, image/x-dwg||image/vnd.ms-dds|
|Type of format||Computer-aided design||Texture files|
|Introduction||DWG is a proprietary binary file format used for storing two- and three- dimensional design data and metadata. It is the native format for several CAD packages including DraftSight, AutoCAD, IntelliCAD, Caddie and Open Design Alliance compliant applications. In addition, DWG is supported non-natively by many other CAD applications.||The DirectDraw Surface container file format (uses the filename extension DDS), is a Microsoft format for storing data compressed with the proprietary S3 Texture Compression (S3TC) algorithm, which can be decompressed in hardware by GPUs.|
|Technical details||DWG contains all the pieces of information a user enters, such as: Designs, Geometric data, Maps, Photos. The .dwg file format is one of the most commonly used design data formats, found in nearly every design environment. The DWG technology environment contains the capability to mold, render, draw, annotate, and measure.||The DirectDraw Surface format is useful for storing graphical textures and cubic environment maps as a data file, both compressed and uncompressed. The Microsoft Windows file extension for this data format is '.dds'.|
