[postgis-users] Is it possible to batch append many dxf to a postgis table?

I found the command/syntax to uplad dxf files to postgis


ogr2ogr --config DXF_INLINE_BLOCKS FALSE --config
user=postgres dbname=pippo password=pippo" my_dxf.DXF entities

But one problem arises..

No polygon is loaded as polygon but is converted to polyline.
Many column, that are important to me (e.g. elevation), aren't loaded

If I load a 3d dxf, is the information about elevation  preserved into postgis?

Any hint?
