DXF thumbnailer

Download it here This application generates a 128x128px PNG image showing the contents of a DXF file. In order to speed up the image generation process, only a few types of entities are read, so complex files might not get rendered accurately or even fail to render. In order to use this program, you must configure your file manager to use it as a thumbnailer for dxf file type (mime type: image/x-dxf).

For thunar: Download this dxf-thumbnailer.Desktop file and place it in /usr/share/thumbnailers. That's it!

For nautilus: Open the gconf editor and add an entry to desktop->gnome->thumbnailers called

Other file managers: Honestly I don't know, I don't use any other, but most of them have a way of including thumbnailers. If you find a way to make it work, please tell me how and I'll include the instructions here.
