File extension.CGM
CategoryCAD File
DescriptionCGM is good for storing vector/bitmap (raster) data, mostly alternately. Contrary to a common false opinion, it is not intended for transmitting CAM/CAD data. Files can be built in CAD and other programs, and it is convenient to use them for exchanging CAM/CAD renderings. CGM was designed to ensure easy exchange of elements of both types, and it uses 3 encoding schemes: character-based, ensuring minimal file size and easy data sharing; binary, providing easy access via software utilities; clear-text encoding, enabling users to edit files by aid of text editing utilities.
