Creating new document and loading existing DXF document
 1 public static void Main()
 2 {
 3    // your dxf file name
 4string file = "sample.dxf";
 5 // by default it will create an AutoCad2000 DXF version
 6 DxfDocument dxf = new DxfDocument();
 7 // an entity
 8 Line entity = new Line(new Vector2(5, 5), new Vector2(10, 5));
 9 // add your entities here
10 dxf.AddEntity(entity);
11 // save to file
12 dxf.Save(file);
13 bool isBinary;
14 // this check is optional but recommended before loading a DXF file
15 DxfVersion dxfVersion = DxfDocument.CheckDxfFileVersion(file, out isBinary);
16 // netDxf is only compatible with AutoCad2000 and higher DXF version
17 if (dxfVersion{DxfVersion.AutoCad2000}) return;
18 // load file
19  DxfDocument loaded = DxfDocument.Load(file);
20 }
