We have recently started using a large number of forming tools in our new parts and i have been trying to use export to DXF to show the tool centres and orientation in a flat pattern. While all other form tools seem to show perfectly Louver Tools dont show up unless i show the punch itself which does not import nicely to my CAM software as they export lines that are not all on the same plane.

Is this a defect? or is there a specific way the louver Form tool needs to be drawn? i have tried using my own form tools as well as the solidworks supplied Examples with the same results.
