What are your Image Quality settings under Document Properties? Crank them up higher.
Hi there :-)
The settings are as follows:
Shaded and draft quality HLR: 0.1515mm
Wireframe and High quality HLR: High(slower)
Improve curve quality at higher settings.
What is wierd is I do have some designs which do not show this polygon related issue, even if they are pretty similar in size??!
Did you ever get a resolution to this? Upgrading the display settings seems to have no effect.
Others recommend extruding the curves and then selecting the edges. In my case, I don't have closed curves, just lines I want traced so this is not an option.
Agree with Nick, this should not be a challenge, yet somehow it is.
Answering my own question, I've found a potential workaround that I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere.
I noticed that when I export a part file as a dxf, solidworks creates a drawing in the background to accomplish the task.
I realized that this might help me accomplish what I was trying to. So rather than use the part file, I created a drawing using the part file with only the line art I wanted to export visible. Then, exporting the drawing file to a dxf creates a file of acceptable resolution with properly curving splines.
In my searching I've found several forum topics that address this basic question, and i believe this would answer them all.
One additional note, I added a point in the drawing at the origin, this way when the line art is imported with the part file for machining it will be easier to line up.
Maybe the problem isnt in your dxf file. If you are using Autocad or Draftsight to open your DXF files, try :
do you want fast zoom (yes or no doesnt matter)
It used to be well documented in Autocad
