Solidworks to Cgm

Hello;

         We have customers that prefer Cgm files over Dxf for some 2/d drawing requirements. I'm wondering if anyone does this consistently & has found a way to do this more efficiently. Presently I output the SW file as a dxf, then go in & fix some scaling issues like leader lines or notes moving. I also sometimes have to replace flow charts that were bitmaps with jpegs. Next I open the dxf in Creo, & do a little more doctoring & then output it as a cgm. A couple of problems I'm having is, I lose the image flow chart in the process all together by the time of the cgm output, & lately it seems that the arrows aren't filling up. Having said that I don't believe SW will export as a Cgm (Maybe 2018?), but I'm also open to a reasonable translating package, if it could do this job more efficiently etc. Any ideas or experiences with this?

 

Thanks in advance for any input.
