What is a .SHX file?

More .SHX File Extension Information

Compiled shapes enable users to save smaller building blocks and fonts that are frequently inserted in drawings. This allows users to save time and not have to re-create often-used shapes and fonts. After a SHP shape file or PFB font file is compiled, the resulting SHX file can be inserted into a drawing. The user can then specify the location, scale, and rotation of the imported shape. NOTE: Autodesk AutoCAD is a 2D and 3D design and engineering application.
