Exporting Graph Segments to DXF


AutoCAD DXF, Drawing Interchange Format, or Drawing Exchange Format, is a CAD data format developed by Autodesk. A DXF file contains a set of entities. For each selected graph segment, the exporter writes an entity of type Line.

Note: The same exporter can also be used to export shapes: For a shape specific description please visit: Exporting Shapes to DXF
