I can import LineStrings, polygons, annotations from a DXF file into ArcMap (and arcpy) but I can't import Points from the same DXF file (neither with arcpy).
No error is reported, simply no features are loaded.
I am simply using the 'Add data' button in the GUI, then I select the layer in the DXF file. When I do it this way, I can 'Zoom to layer' to the correct extent of the layer, but nothing is displayed.
The DXF file version seems to be R12
And with arcpy:
arcpy.FeatureClassToShapefile_conversion(file + os.sep + "Point", self.temp_folder)
Everything works fine in QGIS 2.16.
Any idea how to make this possible?
