Soliciting Funds: An inkscape extension to export dxf with layer information from BlenderBIM svg
Collaboration often involves sharing 2D drawings in dxf format, so people can work in their favorite program. Tipically the drawing elements are organized with layers with different colors, lineweight and linetypes. This is important for increased readability and easily change visibility, lock or unlock parts of the drawing and so on.
Currently, dxf files exported with Inkscape from svg generated with BlenderBIM doesn't contain any layer information.
This project is looking to solicit the funds to help develop an Inkscape extension that allows:
1. Create Inkscape layers from svg elements associated with different IFC classes made with BlenderBIM
2. Allow configuration of the layers attributes (name, color, lineweight, linetype) for each IfcClass
3. Export to dxf with layers information
This has been discussed in the following locations:
As you can see in the links above, there has already been some work in the regard. With this project, we hope to build off this initial work and it will be useful when implementing direct dxf export from BlenderBIM
