I am trying to port a Freecad file to a .dxf file, I have tried to do it with version 0.17, 0.18.1 and 0.18.2 but I always get the same error.

By console I get this:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 4, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/freecad/Mod/Draft/", line 1925, in export
  File "/usr/share/freecad/Mod/Draft/", line 138, in getDXFlibs
    import dxfReader
<class 'SyntaxError'>: invalid syntax (, line 88)


I hope you can resolve this error soon, thank you very much.

Closing this ticket since there is adequate information or examples to use. DXF is an ongoing project in FC. Feel free to search the forums and/or open a new thread to discuss the problem. Please use 0.19pre to test.
