    Limit exported DXF/DWG drawing to sheet extents

    Daniel Herzberg

      Hi All,

       

      I'm exporting several SolidWorks drawings to DXFs. My drawings include some extraneous views, notes, and other stuff off the edges of the sheet (they come with the drawing template, and there's not much I can do about it at the moment).

      I usually export my drawings as PDFs, so this isn't an issue, since the resultant export is limited to the sheet extents. But now that I need to export a DXF, those extraneous items are included, and I don't want them.

       

      How do I tell SolidWorks to limit DXF exports to what's on the sheet? Specifically, how do I do this when bulk exporting with the Task Manager?

       

      Thanks
