2D Data Matix as sketch or on a drawing.

Hey there,

does anybody know how to get a 2D Data Matrix as dxf or igs, so I can use it in a drawing or as a sketch?

Best regards

Jens

I used to do it for plotting plate cams. You can create an AutoCAD script file or write the dxf file itself. An autocad script file (*.scr) is a text file with extention .scr that simulates the sequence of commands at command prompt. It would typically look thus....

pline

0,0

0,2

2,2

2,0

cl

The above script would draw a rectangle of 2 x 2. (note the TWO Paragraph returns)

If you do not have AutoCAD, you may have to create the data from a dxf template.

Hello,

thank you for the advise.

Instead of programming the .scr file I would prefer to sketch it in ProE.

What I need is a application where I can enter the desired data and get an .dxf or .igs file which I can insert in my drawing.
