Tutorial for Creating Simple DXF Drawings¶
Fast DXF R12 File/Stream Writer - create simple DXF R12 drawings with a restricted entities set: LINE, CIRCLE, ARC, TEXT, POINT, SOLID, 3DFACE and POLYLINE. Advantage of the r12writer is the speed and the low memory footprint, all entities are written direct to the file/stream without building a drawing data structure in memory.
Create a new DXF drawing with
ezdxf.new() to use all available DXF entities:
import ezdxf dwg = ezdxf.new('R2010') # create a new DXF R2010 drawing, official DXF version name: 'AC1024' msp = dwg.modelspace() # add new entities to the model space msp.add_line((0, 0), (10, 0)) # add a LINE entity dwg.saveas('line.dxf')
New entities are always added to layouts, a layout can be the model space, a paper space layout or a block layout.
Look at the Layout factory methods to see all the available DXF entities.
