DXF / DWG Output PropertyManager

The new DXF / DWG Output PropertyManager lets you export any planar face or named view from a part file to one or more DXF or DWG files. A preview shows what you have selected so that you can remove entities. An expanded set of geometrical entities is available when you export a sheet metal flat pattern.

With a part open, open the PropertyManager by:

  • Saving the part (File > Save As) to a .dxf or .dwg file type
  • Selecting one or more planar faces, clicking File > Save As, and choosing a .dxf or .dwg file type
  • Selecting one or more planar faces and clicking Export to DXF / DWG
  • In the FeatureManager design tree for a sheet metal part, right-clicking Flat-Pattern and clicking Export to DXF / DWG

After you click Save, the PropertyManager appears.
