How to export from QCAD?

If you need to export a file from QCAD, great news! You can save the file natively within QCAD – no special export process needed. Just press Ctrl+Shift+S to save the file in either the DXF or DWG format.

Whether you’re a CAD pro or just starting out, QCAD is useful for reviewing two-dimensional DXF or DWG files to ensure they’re ready for production. We frequently recommend QCAD for its simple interface and low cost (it’s free if you don’t need the professional add-on).

We have guidance on reviewing designs in QCAD here: How To Preflight Your Designs Using QCAD

After saving your design as a DXF or DWG at 1:1 scaling, you should be able to upload it directly to our website for an instant quote. Confirm the overall dimensions and units are correct in the part preview. Use our file setup checklist to ensure your 2D file is cut-ready!
