no yet, but i've just have a look and there is enough to read.

The dxf code is just dxf2rzp and is in Perl for now.  I would entertain

i will start studying the dxf2rzp to move it to python, when i am able to do
something i will let you know.

The perl installer is fairly decent when I left off.  The python
