I have a client who wants to export a ballooned assembly as .svg. Is this possible? I dont see it in the list. If not, how else might we do it?
thanks so much
What is he eventually going to use the svg for?
What software package is he going to open the SVG in?
May help us give you an alternate solution.
Thanks for the reply. We are looking to extra the coorinates of each item that is ballooned via the <text> element in the svg. This is used for making an interactive parts catalog.
Have you looked in using 3DVia Composer. It makes very good interactive parts catalogs?
No, it would be easier to export the existing CAD models to SVG. Is it possible?
No it is not possible in SolidWorks. You will need to find a tweener application that can import step, iges or parasolid, then export SVG.
What application is your web developer using? Be specific, it will help us answer your question if we know your developers software tools.
We have an application written in flex. It reads SVG files and looks for the <text> XML that represents the balloon for the schematic.
You are using Adobe Flex for website development.
Hopefully, some of the folks here are familiar with the application and can give you some options.
Correct. As well as Java.
Have you looked at 3D PDF's. Not sure if you can export a SVG out of a 3D pdf.
You can Save As a 3D PDF out of SolidWorks.
Anna, are there ANY vector formats that Solid Edge can export to outside of SVG?
I do not know, I am not a Solid Edge user. Best to ask on a Solid Edge forum.
Hi, you can export .ai, .pdf and .dxf from SW.
Draftsight will import .dxf and export .svg.
Inkscape will import .dxf, .ai and .pdf and export as .svg.
Gimp will import .pdf and export .svg
Quality or results may vary....
If you want to do vector drawing, you can open the pdf file with inkscape and save it as svg.
We use Solidworks Composer here to export to a svg format. Then we created interactive work instructions using Composer. It works very well for us.
