but good luck trying to get something like this working as a R14 format (or higher).
To find out what I was missing, I created a simple spline (4 control points) in autocad and saved it as a DXF..
The result is a file packed with data that (although no doubt usefull to the autocad application) is in fact worse than useless to me as it seriously inhibits my attempts at deciphering the format. So, if anyone would be so kind as to explain to me:
What do I need to include besides an entities section in order to constuct a valid DXF R14 file?
Does anyone have a bare-bones no-nonsense DXF R14 file they could post for me as an example?
(p.s. in fact, it doesn't have to be R14, could be higher for all I care. I just want to be able to create a DXF file that contains splines).
