How to convert shapefiles to .dwg format using QGIS 1.7.0?


This is not possible in QGIS but Google tells me there are Autocad plugins for importing Shapefiles http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showthread.php?2004-Converting-shp-files-to-dwg


QGIS can output DXF files by rightclick on the layer and Save as. Every CAD software should be able to read that. A DWG driver is available, but for license issues not implemented:



Export a dxf then convert that to dwg with DoubleCAD XT



QGIS can konvert shapefiles to DXF. Next step is to use https://cloudconvert.com/dxf-to-dwg

BUT you'll need Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or Box to store your DXF files, and the outputfile is also placed in Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or Box.

You can only use the free version for 25 conversions minuttes a day.
