Support for VPORT Render Mode

Jan 27, 2016 at 4:59 PM
Hi,

Once again, thanks for this really useful library.

I want to export shaded polyface meshes to dxf and it would be very useful for me if there was a RenderMode variable for the VPORT (I think this is code 281). I don't see anything like this at the moment, and I was wondering if it's likely to be added in the future?

Thanks,

I could easily add that render mode parameter for VPorts and Viewports objects, but the problem is that it will only work for AutoCad2000 and AutoCad2004 dxf versions. Now, that you can define your own visual styles in AutoCad, this information is stored in a lot more complex way, and it is not as straightforward. I do not really know if the hassle to implement that is really worth it.
