I have a sketch that I wish to export to DXF. The sketch is the outline of the base of a complex shape. I know that I can create a SolidWorks drawing but I don't seem to be able to create a drawing of just the sketch that I want.
I can create a drawing of the entire part but then I have to delete by hand all the extra stuff that I do not need.
Does anybody have advice for me on exporting just a single sketch out of a SolidWorks part or assembly that has other entities in it?
That works well when I have a simple part with a single sketch that needs to be copied.
How would I work this situation?
I have a part that I then bring into a assembly.That part has the sketch that I need. I need more than one of that same identical part in the assembly, just in different locations. I either insert the part multiple times -or- I do a pattern "Component Pattern -> Linear Pattern" to create the multiple copies. Either way I can't seem find a way to copy all the sketches from each identical part and paste them into a drawing without copying them one at a time and recreating the location/spacing of each sketch in the drawing.
How do I place multiple parts into an assembly and get the sketches to transfer to a drawing?
