    yes, there are many parts need to be improved.
    By the way, only a few people have asked for improvements, I just wonder how many do really need/use DXF import/export in 2.63 currently.

    me! extensively ... :-)
    and i'm grateful. you've done a lot. i hope the community will not forget this. me, i will not.
    (i think, there are several work arounds for this 3D issues, isn't it? - so that remigiusz does not have all the work - shouldn't we only wish what we can't workaround easily? note, i'm not sure, how easy or if there is any workaround for the 3D case...)

    I think more useful a dwg importer... I know some people who would migrate from Max to Blender if there was a dwg importer (I will paid for this)

    Not to bump this thread but, I do not want you to think the dxf / cad workflow is unwanted because of lack of response to post #43. So great work! I too am beginning to go into the development of better cad tools for blender. I have to look at your list so to avoid overlapping as it seems you have much covered

    Finished
    Hi Spirou4D,
    this is strange, indeed. I have tried to reproduce it in Blender 2.77a and 2.78a, but all works well here.
    I can try to find out, what is wrong, if you send me more details and an example blend file.

    Sorry Migius,

    I am very confused: I have append my mesh in a new blend file without object.
    and make the export action: all is ok now!

    It's my fault because I work on a very big blend (1900 objects= historic work) since a lot and each time blender change, i have problems.
    It's not your addon: I have a very good export now!
    But with my big blend the runtime didn't want to exec correctly....


    Badly I can't send you my big blend (copyright).

    Thanks for your kindy answer! byebye

    MicroStation/DGN files can be read via DXF format.
    Any DGN-DXF converter with command line interface can be incorporated to DXF-importer script to do the job in background. There are some products on the market offering this, for about $300, though there may be differences in quality, security and license model.

    do you mean to export from Microstation as DXF

    I got some old files as DGN can it be read directly or need to convert before to DXF ?

    I did find a free soft with trial period and converted some DGN to something
    but did not do a nice job
    loss all lines thickness so results was simple lines only not really a nice job.



    thanks

    This is what I meant with "differences in quality".
    If someone have got good experience with any product, please report here.
