Topic: how to get work importing manufacturers dxf

Hi,
I tried the new dxf importer. Works fine with dxf created by myself.
But.
If I try to import Siemens or Phoenix files nothing happens.
..............Example...........
./dxf2elmt ~/Data/TMP/Untitled.dxf -v
<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
<definition height="10" width="10" hotspot_x="0" hotspot_y="0" version="0.80" link_type="simple" type="element">
    <uuid uuid="{51843470-7aa6-45a5-8e21-0333332679d1}" />
    <names>
        <name lang="en">/home/td/Data/TMP/Untitled</name>
    </names>
    <informations>Created using dxf2elmt!</informations>
    <description />
</definition>
.........................
How do I get it work?

TIA
Thomas

What's the difference?

Re: how to get work importing manufacturers dxf

Hello,
Does the export work? If so, it's probably because the drawing elements are shown as blocks in the original drawing that the DXF2elmt can't edit. I dissolved the blocks in the original drawing.

Yes, it worked. And I could reproduce the dxf changes.

Thank you

Hello,

Creator of the conversion program here. dxf2elmt does not currently support the entities in that the .dxf file, as mentioned by another commenter. Support for this will hopefully be added soon.
