I am writing a 3d surface modeling program for boat design and I want to be able to create DWG files to export to a cnc machine. Does any one know the structure of the DWG format. I know it is a vector format, but I would need the exact details to create a file.

Google knows everything[^].

Not exactly. The format is very, very cryptic, done so on purpose.
To work with it, I has to use expensive subscription of Open Design Alliance and later a product of some 3rd-party. Not easy at all.

I didn't expect it to be easy, but that is neither here nor there. I was pointing OP to the starting place for questions such as this.

Well, fair enough. A 5.
