Exporting "flattened" or "single layer PDF from SolidWorks?

Question asked by Justin Huff on Aug 15, 2018

I have a question regarding exporting PDF's from SolidWorks. My company makes laser marking systems which use our software called Symbol Writer Pro. Customers are asking if they can make a drawing in SolidWorks, export PDF and use it in Symbol Writer Pro. In SolidWorks I simply made a new drawing with one square using "rectangle sketch" function. Then export the PDF. The problem is that Symbol Writer Pro doesn't see the lines in the PDF as "joined". Is there an option in SolidWorks to export PDF that is "flattened" or on a "single layer"? I can send a link to download our software if anyone is interested in helping. Thanks!
