    Exporting a drawing from Draft Sight

    Sean Kenny



      I am a complete newbie to DraftSight and cad drawing in general

      I have created a drawing and have also input the measurements for the elements of the drawing

      When I go to export it as a DWG it only prints the object and excludes the measurements and text


      Any ideas anyone

          Hi Sean,


          When using draftsight and drawing inside SolidWorks, a system of layers can be used. This is where the model and the dimensions/annotations and so forth are all included in seperate groups - this makes applying different settings easier. However these can also be set to print and not. - this also effects exports. Check your layers as per the attached video, and if necessary change the layer a dimension is set to or change the layer to allow printing.
