Our graphics department requires vector line art for packaging and instruction manuals. This is an easy thing to do by saving the part as a DWG file and opening in Illustrator. However assemblies will not save to a DWG file and to overcome this:
1. Save assembly as an IGES file.
2. Open IGES file in SW and save as a SW part.
3. Open SW part file and save as an DWG file. Note: When the assembled part is open and before saving as a DWG, you may add perspective or camera view. These view(s) are saved when the assembled part is saved as a DWG.
4. Open DWG file in Illustrator and edit (remove) tangent lines as needed.
