Hi, Mathematicas DXF export is for 3d data and you should try to export it to PostScript and use pstedit http://www.pstoedit.net/pstoedit Regards Jens Roberto Brambilla wrote: > > Dear MathGroup friends, > > how can I export a 2D (plane) curve in DXF format ? > > For example I realized the following generalized ellipse (Lamé) > > a=4.; > b=0.3; > c=3; > x[t_]:=a Sign[Cos[t] Abs[Cos[t]]^(1/c) > y[t_]:=b Sign[Sin[t] Abs[Sin[t]]^(1/c) > > (c=1 is the usual ellipse, c>1 more squared) > > then I plot the figure with > > ParametricPlot[{x[t],y[t]},{t,0,2pg}, AspectRatio->Automatic, Axes->False] > > Now I 'd like to export this curve in DXF format file to use it in other > programs that > accept this kind of file as an input. > > Many thanks in advance, Roberto > > Roberto Brambilla > rlbrambilla at cesi.it
