Sheet Metal Flat Patterns
You can create *.dxf files of sheet metal flat patterns from sheet metal part documents without flattening the model or creating a drawing. This helps to export Dxf files to other applications, such as punch press or laser-cutter programming software. Use one of these methods:
Click File, Save As and select Dxf (*.dxf) for Save as type.
Right-click Flat-Pattern in the FeatureManager design tree and select Export to DXF/DWG.
The words Flat pattern are prepended to the file name.
In the DXF / DWG Output PropertyManager, under Entities To Export, clear Bend lines to generate the Dxf file without bend lines in it.
