Reading ASCII points

Broomy
One of the new features of the daily update is importing points with an ASCII-file. (File-->Import-->ASCII points)
So far I haven't been able to do so.
Did anyone succeed?

Re: Reading ASCII points

Works for my:
From this thread (10 months old):
http://forum.librecad.org/LibreCAD-for-mapping-td4549798.html

File->Import->Read ascii points

Simply change "format" to "Comma separator" for CSV files

The format of the data expected by the plugin are (code not mandatory):

number,x-coordinate,y-coordinate,z-coordinate,code

like:
1,257.65,354.25,0.0,wall
2,293.58,355.98,0.0
3,315.12,357.37,door

The "format" is the most important, if you select "Comma separator" and the file
is "space separator" the plugin do not work.

Hello all
I understood your explanation about CSV format,
But on my LibreCAD (version 1.02 for Windows) "Import" in file menu is not avaible (grey).
I would like to try  asciifile1.dll but i didn't find "plugIn folder"
Thanks for your support

Hey,

we have a alpha version of LibreCAD 2.0.0 that is importing,
but beware it's a alpha version and there are known bugs that currently can crash LibreCAD and you may loose your drawings.

Thank you for the fast answer.
I discover that shp format is included. That great! I Am very interested in GIS...
One of my friends is teacher in a geographic academy.
I would like involved some GIS students in plugin project for LibreCAD.
Could you tell me where i can found some documentation about that?

Hello Siprex3D,

the shp import plugin is incomplete, at least multipoint shapes are not haldled.

If you want to collaborate might complete the plugin.

Another GIs related feature are add support for DGN files. You can start using
the skeleton of importshp plugin and libdgn from ogr:
http://www.gdal.org/ogr/drv_dgn.html.

To learn about LC plugin creation you can read (outdated):
https://github.com/Rallaz/LibreCAD/wiki/Write-plugins-HOWTO
and read the fully documented file:
librecad/src/plugins/document_interface.h
