There is no connection between the technical platforms, producing dxf files and the gis-world. To combine this aereas, it is necessary to read dxf-files as native function in qis. (The way about grass plugins does not realy works.)

#1 Updated by Jürgen Fischer about 15 years ago

There is a core plugin that converts dxf to shape.

#2 Updated by Gerhard Spieles about 15 years ago

Converting dxf2shp loose important informations. Examples are attached.

#3 Updated by Paolo Cavallini almost 15 years ago

In general, it is difficult to use dxf files in a GIS without conversion, because of the deeply different data model

#5 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 14 years ago

Please note that in spite of the name, the suggested solution (opendwg) is non free, so probably cause of other hassles. Probably better to go on and improve the already working plugin, or port it/rewrite it to OGR

  • Status changed from Open to Closed
