Feature request #1437

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.)
There is a core plugin that converts dxf to shape.
Converting dxf2shp loose important informations. Examples are attached.
In general, it is difficult to use dxf files in a GIS without conversion, because of the deeply different data model
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
- Resolution set to wontfix
- Status changed from Open to Closed
DXF support has been recently added to GDAL/OGR. Please fill tickets there if not working properly
