hi, i am facing difficulties in executing this script. Please help me with giving inputs arguments.Thanks.

Excellent contribution. I slightly modified the script to read airfoil data and generate the dxf to import with Hypermesh and works perfectly.

I had the same problem as dario.
The Name of the Layer was "0 " instead of "0". Therefore, i changed line 12 to:
Now it works perfect for me.
(Maybe a little late...)

Thanks for the script, very useful. however I tried to use the function but when opening in AutoCad 2011 it says
Invalid or incomplete DXF input -- drawing discarded.

even though t picks the coordinates (I can see them in the dxf file opened with notepad). Do you know wht's wrong?
