Import-Export: Import AutoCAD DXF Format (.dxf)
Closed, ArchivedPublic


System Information
Windows 10 - NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT

Blender Version
Broken: (example: 2.78b 3c04373
Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
(1) Only can import R12 DXF files. Should be a warning or something to this effect.
(2) Cannot add texture to imported DXF files.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps
(1) Attempting to import a DXF file from any version beyond R12 will only produce 8 short squiggly lines in the viewing area.
(2) Followed 4 different tutorials and 2 different directions for texturing a mesh object in Blender and all failed at the same point.

Everything worked properly until it came time to UNWARP the object and it would not unwarp either automatically or manually.
(Selecting the vertex selects the entire object)
Suspect that the objects are not being imported as MESH objects.

hi, could you provide a test file please.
This task seems a duplicate or your stl task with the same issue.
we really need a file to see what is going wrong.

I attached 2 files the first one Test.dxf is a single object x = 57.5”, y = 6.5” and z = 1.75” and the origin of one vertices is at x = 0, y = 0, z = 0.
The Second file (Table.dxf) is a table of multiple objects the base is a single merged object while the top consist of nine objects representing the physical top I was hoping to texture each of these boards separately. On vertices of the table top is at x = 0, y = 0, z = 24.75”.

I am not sure of what scale factor to use for the output of AutoCAD to input to Blender but apparently some form of scaling would be appropriate.

I am using the output to go to Second Life so I will be outputting to a Collada file format.

Any other information you need please do not hesitate to ask!
Thanks for your time and effort.
