  • Open Inkscape
  • Import DXF File
  • Edit If Necessary

Inkscape will open the DXF file. You may need to make adjustments to the drawing or resize it to fit your needs using Inkscape’s editing tools.

  • Save as SVG

Once you’re satisfied with your adjustments, click “File” in the top menu and select “Save As.”
In the “Save as type” dropdown, choose “Scalable Vector Graphics (*.svg).”
Select a location on your computer to save the SVG file, give it a name, and click “Save.”

For very complex or intricate DXF drawings, you may need to do some manual adjustments in Inkscape to achieve the desired results.

How does Inkscape implement SVG?

Inkscape prides itself on being a fully standard-compliant SVG editor. As of March 2015, it even supports rendering of SVG properties which are not yet officially part of the standard, but have reached a stable state in the SVG Working Group’s draft for SVG 2.0. Those include hatched patterns, the fill/stroke painting order and CSS blending modes. Currently, those are not yet editable via the GUI, but can be changed by editing the attributes in the XML editor, of course.
