Re: dwg/DXF plugin

What is the size of your DXF?
Maybe you can reduce the size by editing it and removing unnecessary part with a DXF editor program.

Re: dwg/DXF plugin

the file size is 5.83 MB

Re: dwg/DXF plugin

You could share this DXF?

Re: dwg/DXF plugin

Thanks for the help i understand that converting from dxf to element is possible .

I am able to make the dxf to lower size ,but still unable to follow the sequence to convert the dxf file to element ,there is some confusion as to which path to follow as some of the comments are in french .
can you suggest the sequence to follow or a video capture for it.

If dxf converter crash try other old versions.

After, open converted elmt with QET element editor, remove the terminal added by converter and save (very important for create real element hotspot).

Re: dwg/DXF plugin

Open your DXF with Inkscape, save to Cutting Plotter (AutoCAD DXF R14)(*.dxf) is better for converter.
If dxf converter crash try other old versions.

Re: dwg/DXF plugin

got good success in many files  using dxf to element convert ,however the files of beyond 5.5MB cannot be handled well in software also about 5 MB file takes lot of time to convert to dxf to element.
Is there a workaround possible for using heavier files i tried inkscape but not of much help.

Individual elements of the DXF appear in the graphic as very short lines, but they are
originally very short sections of a circle with a large radius. Hence the huge ones
dashed circles in the QET element ...

I took the bother once and with Inkscape, my favorite drawing program
the DXF of the Sitop UPS 1600 is opened. There are front and side views as "symbols"
in front. I then copied the front view and pasted it into a new Inkscape instance.
Now the "symbol" was available as a regular drawing and could again be exported to DXF.

The QET element converted from this now contains almost 7000 individual elements, so
For example, the component cannot be colored because there is no closed contour,
there are no longer any huge circles for minimally short lines ...

My approach for a good QET symbol is this:
Import the DXF file into Inkscape and edit the graphic so that the number
Individual elements will be significantly lower to then use via DXF export from Inkscape
DXFtoQET to create a QET element.
Yes, that sounds awkward, but I find editing with Inkscape to be
more comfortable than with the element editor or other CAD programs. For the
The element editor is then of course indispensable for fine-tuning!

In the appendix you will find the Sitop UPS 1600 - DXF processed as follows:
- opened in Inkscape
- Front symbol copied (Ctrl + C) and pasted into new Inkscape window (Ctrl + V)
- Export to DXF
- an element created with DXFtoQET
