This serializer outputs a 'blobable' array of data from one or more JSCAD geometries. Currently, only DXF TEXT output is supported. The array of data can either be used to create a Blob (new Blob(blobable)), or converted to a Node.js buffer.

The serialization of the following geometries are possible.

  • serialization of 2D geometry (geom2) to DXF LWPOLYLINE or POLYLINE
  • serialization of 3D geometry (geom3) to DXF 3DFACE(s)
  • serialization of 2D paths (path2) to DXF LWPOLYLINE or POLYINE

npm install @jscad/dxf-serializer


const dxfSerializer = require('@jscad/dxf-serializer')

const rawData = dxfSerializer.serialize({}, geometry)

//in browser (with browserify etc)
const blob = new Blob(rawData)
