Type: Basic DXF R12 entity.

A point simply marks a coordinate. Points are generally used for reference.

DXFEngine.point(point=(0., 0.), **kwargs)
  • point – start point (xy- or xyz-tuple)
  • orientation – a 3D vector (xyz-tuple), orientation of PDMODE images … see dxf documentation

Common Keyword Arguments for all Basic DXF R12 Entities

keyword description
layer Layer name as string
linetype Linetype name as string, if not defined = BYLAYER
color as integer in range [1..255], 0 = BYBLOCK, 256 = BYLAYER
thickness Thickness as float
paper_space 0 = entity is in model_space, 1 = entity is in paper_space
extrusion_direction 3D Point as tuple(x, y, z) if extrusion direction is not parallel to the World Z axis

Attribs of DXF entities can be changed by the index operator:

from dxfwrite import DXFEngine as dxf

drawing = dxf.drawing('drawing.dxf')
point = dxf.point((1.0, 1.0))
point['layer'] = 'points'
point['color'] = 7
point['point'] = (2, 3) # int or float
