Hey guys, is it possible to place this model along with its decal in a Autocad 2D drawing??
Simply create your drawing and when you save it select save as and scroll down to .DWG.
I did that but its not showing the decal.. Is there a way to show decals in AutoCAD? or would I have to trace the decal in solidoworks (not trying to do that!)
try to save as igs file and see if decal shows back up in solidworks then open in acad.
How is the decal created? Is it a sketch picture inserted on the surface of the box?
You might want to set it so the sketches show.
should be simple as Jim said. or you could try to open the file in auto cad. Some versions of auto cad will let you open SolidWorks files.
If that label is a decal, and I suspect it is, it wouldn't even show up in a SolidWorks drawing unless it was a shaded view, so I'm not surprised it isn't showing up when you save to AutoCAD. Have you tried creating a SW Drawing, with a shaded drawing view showing the decal, and then save that as .dwg? I still don't have high hopes, but it's worth trying.
