I m using QGIS 2.18. I am getting the following error when I try to convert dxf to shapefile. The other software like online convertor and arcgis give no errors in converting the same shapefile. The program crashes.

    When you edit your question there will be a picture button along the top that you can use to attach a screenshot. Be sure to always include errors as text in preference to pictures. – PolyGeo Sep 17 '18 at 4:48

If I don't care about any attributes attached to the features in the dxf, I simple load the dxf into QGis and use save as to "convert" it into shape format. Otherwise there's CAD2Shape, a proprietary converter.

Worth to mention: Be sure your dxf has no z-values, otherwise QGis might not be able to work with the file properly.
