Tutorial for creating simple DXF drawingsΒΆ

r12writer - 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

# Create a new DXF R2010 drawing, official DXF version name: "AC1024"
doc = ezdxf.new('R2010')

# Add new entities to the modelspace:
msp = doc.modelspace()
# Add a LINE entity
msp.add_line((0, 0), (10, 0))

New entities are always added to layouts, a layout can be the model space, a paper space layout or a block layout.
