I have some regions in an AutoCAD dxf file that needs to be imported in QGIS as polygons. I tried to import these regions from dxf but nothing happens also using the Dxf2SHP converter. What can I do?
I imagine this question has already been answered, but what you can do is to add a Vector Layer: Layer > Add Layer > Add Vector Layer...
Then browse for your .dxf file.
Finally, once you've chosen your file, click 'Open' and a new window appears, choose your CRS
and select the features you want to "import" (you can 'ctrl+click' to choose more than one at a time).
That should work.
I assume QGIS can not access regions direct (add layer) and can not import regions (dxf2shp). Try to use a dxf with closed polylines instead of regions.
- Add dxf with polylines to QGIS.
- Save dxf to shapefile
- Add shapefile to QGIS
- Use vector > geometry tools -> vector to polygon to create a shapefile with polygons
