    need advice on breaking piece out of .sldprt into .dxf file

    Dave Krum

      Hi All,

      Not sure if I'm putting this in the correct section on this forum.  I modeled a simple 2 piece weldment for a test in shop on one of our machines.  I am not sure of the quickest/easiest way is to break the two pieces apart so I can take the one directly from the .sldprt file and save it true size (normal to top view) as a .dxf file for plasma-cutting.   The part I'd like to save to a .dxf file is the one in the FMT called "Main Profile".  I did have both pieces unmerged but when I went to add the fillet, it appears I cannot use "insert into new part" for either of them.  Before I had the fillet weld added, I could use "insert into new part" and then take that part to a .dxf file.  I'm using SW2010 if that matters.  Thanks for any advice!
