Plate Weldment -> DXF?

Question asked by Terry Raymond on Jul 28, 2009

I have a weldment part file with most of the bodies as waterjetted plates (1/4~1" thick).  I have drawing files that show views of the plates, as well as additional dimensions, views, notes, title block, etc.

 

What is the easiest way to get clean 1:1 DXF files of each of these plates?

 

Currently to get a usable DXF, I have to save the whole drawing as a DXF, open it in AutoCAD, rescale it, and remove all the excess notes & lines.  This is incredibly tedious.  What else can I do?

 

In another program, I used to just right-click the view and chose "export to DXF".  Done!

 

Thanks for any help!!
