DXF AutoCAD 2002 (15.2) limits

Postby wit » Tue Nov 29, 2011 10:50 pm

Is there any documentation specifying the limits of the DXF AutoCAD 2002 (15.2) file format:
- max number of points, lines, splines...and so forth. (per layer ?)
- max number of layers.
- max file size

Many thanks for your help.

I'm unaware of any relevant limit that would be enforced by the file format.

Theoretical limits enforced by object handles and data types exist of course but are exorbitant.

File size might be restricted by some older Windows file systems (FAT32) to about 4GB.

A DXF reference with general documentation about data types and fields is available from Autodesk: http://www.google.com/?q=dxf+reference

Thanks for your quick answer.
So I'm investigating the upload process.

FYI, I'm using DXF format to upload point clouds, I need to investigate were the blocking limits are coming from.
