I am not a DXF specialist.
However, AFAIK, generic DXF format does not know filled lines (or arcs).
They are output as sketch shapes.

Do not expect filled shapes when using a DXF viewer.
I have previously used a library called libdxfrw to read dxf files.
Maybe that could be used in kicad, too. For writing and reading (not
that it adds any missing features into the format itself). I'd be
interested in the reading part for importing complex board outlines,
dimension lines etc. into pcbnew. I remember somebody expressing
concerns about a dxf import function producing lots of bug reports due
to file format version compatibility issues. Maybe using a dedicated
library would help there.


I was aware of this lib (It comes from LibreCAD) but I did not found any doc to use it (no document and no comments in sources)
Have you some doc?
