Bulk AutoCAD DXF to Shapefile Converter

This tool will allow you to convert one or more AutoCAD DXF files into shapefiles in one pass. Note that this converter does not support DWG, only DXF.

In addition to geometry, the DXF layer names are preserved as an attribute table field.

The desktop version can also handle more complex entities such as LWPOLYLINE bulge values.
