DXF Reading
« on: May 30, 2015, 01:13:33 AM »
Does anyone know if you can read in a DXF into AutoCAD and get the Polygons that are returned from the DXF?

If that makes sense?

You can create a temporary database, import the DXF in that (Database.DxfIn()), iterate through the ObjectIds and get the Polygons and clone them. Or you can insert the DXF in the current Database (Database.Insert()) and iterate through the entities to remove everything that is not a Polygon.
The conclusion is justified that the initialization of the development of critical subsystem optimizes the probability of success to the development of the technical behavior over a given period.

DXFs are usually ASCII and can therefore be read fairly easily. (serving the CAD community since 2003)
