Auto Cad Drawing Database (.DWG)

The .DWG file format is used by a number of CAD applications, such as AutoCAD and IntelliCAD, computer aided drafting (CAD) software packages for 2D and 3D design and drafting.
It currently runs only on Microsoft operating systems. Versions for Unix and Apple Macintosh were released, but these were met with limited market acceptance and were later dropped. It usually suffers from poor performance when run in an emulator or compatibility layer like Virtual PC or WINE.

Shapes File (.SHP)

Files with the SHP extension are associated with the DOS version of Autodesk's 3D Studio Max. The initial 3D Studio product was developed for the DOS platform and was rewritten for Windows and renamed to "3ds Max" only after its 4th release.
SHP files contain various shapes and polygons defined by lines and vertices created with 2D Shaper using 3D Studio.
How to open SHP Files
SHP files can be opened with 3D Studio or imported into Autodesk 3ds Max. If a SHP file contains more than one shape, the user can choose between merging all of them into one object or creating multiple objects. This is done by choosing the desired option in the 3DS Import Dialog. The default option of the application is importing all shapes as a single editable spline object.
