As of June 2015, free DXF files can be downloaded from websites such as DXF1.com and FreeDXF.com. Free DXF samples are also available for download at SignTorch.com.
DXF is a file format standing for drawing exchange file. Developed by Autodesk, it is used for computer-aided design files, such as AutoCAD documents. Since DXF is ASCII-based, it is compatible with more programs than files having the DWG file extension.
DXF1.com has four categories of DXF files available: Animals & Insects, Objects & Signs, Religious & Symbols, and Ornaments & Heraldic. To download a file, select a category, then choose any file from the options displayed. If looking for a specific file, click on Search Downloads at the homepage. In the page that appears, type the words to search, and select whether the words should be searched in titles or descriptions. If found, click on the desired search result, and download the file.
