Hey guys, 


let me start out by saying I'm using a macro to save several versions of my drawing at once, with that being said I have a question about exporting a .dxf but wasn't sure if the question went in export or under macros, 


what im trying to accomplish is to export a part .DXF that we can send to the lasers, but link it, or base it off of the orientation of the flat view on the drawing.


For Ex: 

I would like to get this Product, Flat sheet metal pattern with bend lines.

But based on the Orientation of the Flat View in the Drawing


I realize this IS the same orientation because I did it manually, what Im trying to accomplish is to add a step in my macro that will export the part .DXF version when I run the Macro, along with all my drawing Versions, but export it whatever orientation I have the flat pattern on the drawing, so I don't have to go back in to the part and save the .DXF to match on every part we do, is this possible?
