Project description

pyzwcad - ZwCAD Automation for Python

This library aimed to simplify writing ActiveX Automation scripts for ZwCAD with Python

This library is forked from the pyautocad library, everywhere you can call ACAD and ZCAD, you can use ZwCad type and also use AutoCad type.

Requires:

Optional:

Features:

  • Simplifies work with coordinates (3D points)
  • Efficient objects iteration and searching (with casting to correct type)
  • Excel/csv/json import and export (xlrd and tablib required)

Simple usage example:

from pyzwcad import ZwCAD, APoint


acad = ZwCAD()
acad.prompt("Hello, Autocad from Python\n")
print acad.doc.Name

p1 = APoint(0, 0)
p2 = APoint(50, 25)
for i in range(5):
    text = acad.model.AddText('Hi %s!' % i, p1, 2.5)
    acad.model.AddLine(p1, p2)
    acad.model.AddCircle(p1, 10)
    p1.y += 10

dp = APoint(10, 0)
for text in acad.iter_objects('Text'):
    print('text: %s at: %s' % (text.TextString, text.InsertionPoint))
    text.InsertionPoint = APoint(text.InsertionPoint) + dp

for obj in acad.iter_objects(['Circle', 'Line']):
    print(obj.ObjectName)
