I am using Sw2009 sp2 (64 bit).

I made a lofted sheet metal part of a simple 90deg pressing (looks like an angle)and when I placed the flat pattern view on the drawing is was not flat. At the part, when I right click and export the flat pattern, the dxf file is not flat. It just looks like a normal end view in both cases.

It will flatten at part level though. So it's only in drawing view and dxf export.

Anyone seen this?
