dxf-rs

A rust crate for reading and writing DXF CAD files.

Usage

Put this in your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
dxf = "0.5.0"

Or if you want serde support, enable the serialize feature:

[dependencies]
dxf = { version = "0.5.0", features = ["serialize"] }

Note that serde support is intended to aid in debugging and since the serialized format is heavily dependent on the layout of the structures, it may change at any time.

And finally add:

extern crate dxf;

Documentation

See the documentation here on docs.rs.

Integration tests

There are some integration/interop tests under src/misc_tests/integration.rs. They currently only run on Windows when the ODA File Converter tool has been installed from the Open Design Alliance. The tool can be found here.

DXF Reference

Since I don't want to fall afoul of Autodesk's lawyers, this repo can't include the actual DXF documentation. It can, however contain links to the official documents that I've been able to scrape together. For most scenarios the 2014 documentation should suffice, but all other versions are included here for backwards compatibility and reference between versions.

and a simple launch page can be added via:

echo "<html><meta http-equiv='refresh' content='0; url=files/GUID-235B22E0-A567-4CF6-92D3-38A2306D73F3.htm' /></html>" > help.autodesk.com/cloudhelp/2018/ENU/AutoCAD-DXF/index.html
