Does anyone else have issues with converting to a DXF.?
We have never had an issue when using the convert to DXF/Dwg (RMB the required face, select convert to DXF/Dwg)
Alternate you could try. Make drawing from part (make 1:1) then Save As >dxf
Never have any issues converting to DXF/DWG.
Post an example of a file that is giving you issues.
Randy, we make a lot of DXF files for our Wire EDM vendor and our internal Water-JET machines and both areas have always required a database with at least 3 primary views (Top/Front/Right). So we take a blank sheet format drawing from the model and populate it with said views and the option to Scale Output 1:1 enabled.
Everything goes as planned as long as we don't change the view scale in any way once they've been placed on the sheet. We had a designer who used all the same settings but had been changing the drawing view scale to 1:1 on the drawing sheet and for whatever reason SW does not like that. Once the view scale on the sheet is changed to 1:1 something happens between the option and the export and the scale ends up being off.
I can't comment on creating DXF's from models as we don't do it that way but when it comes to drawings being exported the way the file has been created is very important.
