Description

Create a DXF file with py5.

For users who are familiar with Processing and py5 programming, you can pretend the code in this cell will be executed in a Sketch with no draw() function and your code in the setup() function. It will use the DXF renderer.

As this is creating a DXF file, your code will be limited to the capabilities of that renderer.

This magic is not available on OSX.

Code used in this cell can reference functions and variables defined in other cells. By default, variables and functions created in this cell will be local to only this cell because to do otherwise would be unsafe. If you understand the risks, you can use the global keyword to add a single function or variable to the notebook namespace or the --unsafe argument to add everything to the notebook namespace. Either option may be very useful to you, but be aware that using py5 objects in a different notebook cell or reusing them in another Sketch can result in nasty errors and bizzare consequences.

Usage

%%py5drawdxf [--unsafe] width height filename

Arguments

positional arguments:
  width     width of DXF output
  height    height of DXF output
  filename  filename for DXF output

optional arguments:
  --unsafe  allow new variables to enter the global namespace
