Topic: Export DXF fail QElectroTech-0.70-dev+svn5627-1

Dear Qelectrotech Team
Im was using new version 0.70. I just want to know if the DXF export feature are not available due these version is not official released.
i can export to JPEG, PNG, etc, but when i send to DXF, the only drawing that was exported is the title block.

Thanks a lot for your help, and congratulations for you program.

I want to use 0.7 version because there is the feature to add to elements more information, like we have a database, with manufacturer name, part number, etc.

Hello Gamezgust,

thanks for the compliments, but we do not have anyone who is expert in DXF and who can review the DXF export code right now, and add new dynamic texts conversion.

Hi Laurent the king of workaround,
have you any solution to convert new dynamic text in old text ?
We have a project to convert in dxf and it's a very big problem to loose all text...

Somebody work on this problem ?

I think more better if you don't use bitmap fonts in QET settings dynamic_texts fonts select a vector font !

Thanks Laurent.

cups PDF can export vector fonts into PDF, and I think not QPrinter::PdfFormat (raster format ) used in QET to generate PDF files.
http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qprinter.html

Also you need vector fonts if you want DXF texts can be editable after conversion.


A bitmap font is made of raster images that define each character of a font. Bitmap fonts are non-responsive, and do not maintain their shape & character when resized to bigger/smaller sizes. these are generally meant for use in one size only. Proggy is a good example of a bitmap font. Bitmap fonts are rarely used nowadays.

A vector font is a type of font where the glyphs of the font is defined mathematically and graphed on whatever application you are using. Vector fonts can be used anywhere, and are flexible to use. they can be expanded to huge sizes without any problem, as they can retain their size. Most modern fonts like Adobe Source Sans are vector fonts.

Other workaround.

export your diagrams to svg, open it in inkscape and save to *.DXF.

https://blog.willwinder.com/2014/02/eas … rsion.html


https://github.com/winder/svgToDxf


This script simply runs a command with Inkscape to convert a file from svg to
eps, and then runs another command with pstoedit to convert it from eps to
dxf.

Exemple pour inkscape en CLI et faire de la conversion par lot :
