What is SHX file?
The SHX file extension is a file used by AutoCAD. It contains data that the software needs to create 3D objects of different shapes and sizes. The file automatically compiles the data in the proper order, making it easy for the user to quickly make changes without having to worry about re-compiling. The SHX contains raw points, segments, edges, faces, vertices and primitives.
