LWPOLYLINE not following spec strictly

Post by dvlierop » Mon Jun 19, 2017 8:22 pm

FreeCAD exports a R11 file with a polyline, having (x, y, z) coordinates. When I convert this file to a R15 using QCAD, then I get a lwpolyline, having also (x, y, z) coordinates. However, the z coordinate is not defined in the DXF specification for the lwpolyline, and might confuse other tools (such as in my case ezdxf).

I couldn't find out how to file a bug report in the tracker, so that's why I'm reporting here.

Nevertheless, thanks a lot otherwise for your great tools!
