I am making sheet metal ribs for an aircraft and when I use the "flatten" button to make a flatpattern, none of the fillets or modifications that I do in the "flattened" state will be exported out when I do a "save as DXF". Sometime the "flatten" button doesn't quite do some edges the way I want it to so I have to modify the flat pattern after the fact. I can put the flat pattern on a drawing and then do a "save as DXF" and it works great, but that is an extra step that I would like not to have to do. I hope I explaned this enough for everyone.
