As applications continue to see the DGN representation of the DWG data, applications developed to run with on MicroStation with DGN files will for the most part work without change when DWG files are being used. Tools that are developed to edit, query or create DGN geometry will continue to function, and MicroStation largely handles the conversion to DWG automatically and seamlessly.

This chapter covers two essential areas that developers may want to take advantage of when writing MDL applications that read and write data as DWG entities.
