Draft::Drawing - CAD drawing type


A directory that contains multiple drawing elements


A simple file-system directory/folder that contains any number of drawing objects, represented by files; and optionally, any number of further drawings represented by subdirectories.

Note that this is not completely analogous to a traditional monolithic CAD file format, as blocks/symbols associated with a drawing are complete drawings in their own right.


Read a drawing into memory, or simply update an already-loaded drawing by using the Read method:


Note that this method will only access the filesystem if files have actually changed or are new - Feel free to call this method as often as you like as it has very little performance overhead.
