DXF Files

The Import Module has limited support for 2D CAD drawings in DXF format. DXF files may be included in a product for documentation purposes only.

To include a DXF file in a product, link the file to a User layer. It is not possible to link a DXF file to any other layer.

The DXF parser supports only a subset of DXF entities and parameters. Unsupported entities include all 3D, view, text and dimenson entities. In addition, entities which use elliptical or spline curves are not supported. The parser interprets all dimensions as mm, unless the $INSUNITS parameter is set to 1 (inch). Unsupported entities are ignored, which may give undesirable results.
