.IGES/DXF viewing capabilities?

Hello, I am wondering about Bokeh’s ability to display CAD outputs for a quick viewing inside a web browser. has anyone tried to make a IGES/DXF file display? From my readings so far it seems that Bokeh needs a rigid data set to draw from, but how flexible is the ability to potentially display a DXF or IGES file?

Hi,

I have no experience at all with the data formats you mention, so it's hard for me to say anything specific. But I will say in general that: 1) Bokeh can "draw" most anything, and that 2) the data for the visual objects can static, but may also be updated in a variety of ways:

* custom JS code
* Ajax Data sources
* Python callbacks in Bokeh server apps
* custom user extensions

Can you elaborate on the use case and functionality that you are looking for specifically?

Thanks,

Bryan

Hey Bryan,

The basic overview of what I am looking for is a browser based CAD viewer that can pan/zoom but doesn’t require uploading the file to another server. Right now I have a design tool that can pump out a template 2-D IGES file, but the user must have a drawing viewer installed to view it. The end goal is to have the ability to view what was drawn in a browser-based application, that eventually could be developed to be interacted with to grab quick measurements.

The IGES file is a standard CAD file, designed for graphics exchange. Personally I do not fully understand the file format, I was trying to send out a feeler to see if anyone else has used the Bokeh framework for any sort of CAD viewing,

Thanks,

Jim
