DESCRIPTION

Standard DXF is imported. The following graphical objects are supported:
  • DXF POINT
  • DXF LINE
  • DXF POLYLINE
  • DXF LWPOLYLINE
  • DXF ARC
  • DXF CIRCLE
  • DXF TEXT
  • DXF POLYFACE MESHES
  • DXF 3DFACE
  • Capital column names are changed to lowercase characters as for easier SQL usage (lowercase column names avoid the need to quote them if the attribute table is stored in a SQL DBMS such as PostgreSQL).
