CAD2Shape 7.0

AutoCAD® DXF/DWG to ArcView / ESRI Shapefile converter.
CAD2Shape correctly handles translation of 'holes' or 'islands' for polygon shapefiles. It does a global resolution of all polygons in the CAD drawing to give a correct result even when polygons in the drawing are not carefully defined.
