    @Nii: that's indeed a bug, since some API inside Blender has changed.

    Here is the fixed version: dxfWriter_0.0.9.zip

    Thank you.

    There is one other issue with Freestyle. I'm surprised people have used it so far without noticing it and reporting the issue. There's always a "hole" somewhere between the interconnected lines. To make things worse that hole which I'm guessing is between the first and last line on the frame is randomly placed each frame.
    Here's an example blend to show what I mean. THe holes jumps randomly on the left side of the render.

    @Nii:
    This is a known limitation of the actual used algorithm for finding the visible edges. There is some work in progress to make this better. At the moment one solution to avoid this could be to add a subdivison modifier to the mesh.

    New version online Download.

    Changed the output filename to FrameXXXXXX_LayerYY.dxf, so now it's possible to have multiple layers for different lasers projectors... :-)
    For example one object is on layer 0 and renders to one dxf file, and another object is on layer 1 and renders to the second projector.

    This makes animations with a lot of details much easier to distribute among projectors.

    Please make this naming optional. Some programs which color frames by bmp images want the image and frame file named the same.

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	2.png 
Views:	9 
Size:	39.4 KB 
ID:	56078Installing works now.
    Now I struggle to get DXF output. Also there are no lines in the viewport.
    Freestyle is enabled in the render tab.
    In View layer dxfwriter.py is selected as a style module, in python scripting mode.

    When rendering, I see messages like "freestyle mesh loading" and "stroke rendering", but no file output.

    please help.
