2D DXF files are very large and curved with many points

Hello. I have a problem with the size of the 2d dxf file exported by the SDExportDownload component.

It exports the file with many dots which prevents the laser machine from reading the file and making the cut.

Each point is a new direction reading for the machine, requiring more time to process the shapediver files.

In the definition I created there is an internalized source file that is cut as the person changes the length and height of a sheet of metal.

The source file is in dxf format and has a smaller size than the laser machine can read, but the one generated by the shapediver it cannot.


The source file in dxf is 1.3mb but the file exported by the shapediver is 25.5mb. Also considering the size of the file this ends up affecting the maximum size of the outputs.

In the source file the curves are regions and in the exported file the curves are polylines.

1 - Is there any configuration of the SDExportDownload component that can decrease the number of points?

2 - Is there anything you can do in the definition so that the number of points is less without changing the original geometry?


We will release a new plugin version next month including new components that will allow users to define many export options for several file formats. In particular, most options for the dxf and dwg formats will be exposed, which should fix your issue.

We will update this topic when the plugin is updated.
