CGM stands for Computer Graphics Metafile. This is a free format used to store text and graphic files. Despite the fact that the format is free and independent, many users choose to convert CGM files to other formats. Why is that, you may ask. The answer is simple – CGM can only be viewed with the help of expensive software. Programs compatible with CGM format include, but are not limited to: IMSI TurboCAD Deluxe 18, ACD Systems Canvas 12, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5, Corel PaintShop Pro X4, Corel WordPerfect Office X5, Autodesk AutoCAD 2012, Adobe Illustrator CS5, CADSoftTools, Larson Software Technology VizEx Reader, and Informative Graphics MYRIAD Desktop. As you might or might not know, all of them are priced at $170 and up.
The best way to easily open CGM files is to convert CGM to BMP, one of the most popular image formats.
