Common Keyword Arguments for all Basic DXF R12 Entities

keyword description

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

from dxfwrite import DXFEngine as dxf

drawing = dxf.drawing('drawing.dxf')
line = dxf.line((1.2, 3.7), (5.5, 9.7))
line['layer'] = 'walls'
line['color'] = 7
line['start'] = (1.2, 4.3, 1.9)
