Is there a geometry type (both 2D and 3D) that is supported by DWG and cannot (lossless-ly) be expressed using Well-Known Text? If there is, please provide an example.

  • Can you give us a list of DWG geometry types? – user30184 Nov 20 '16 at 16:32

It likely depends on the software you intend to use. If you use AutoCad Map 3D, then:

This article explains about Polygons and Multipolygons. It identifies that you cannot create non-planar polygons.

This article explains about Lines and Multilines. It identifies some concern for arcs.

This article doesn't list any issues with Points or Multipoints.
