We regulate here the format of export of the files.

  • Export“:
    • To generate a drawing SOLIDWORKS“:

By checking this option it is possible to select a model of drawing (.drwdot). All exports will take this model.

    • To generate a generic file of export“:

One selects here the format of exit of the files either the format is the DXF either the format is the DWG. It can be necessary:

      • To specify if a scale factor must be applied.
      • To specify space to be envisaged between each view.

  • Regrouping“:

If several bodies of sheet metal are processed, a view for each conversion will be created in this case it is necessary to specify if the bodies of the same sheet metal thickness must be gathered:

    • In only one drawing per thickness. Several files if several thicknesses.
    • In only one drawing but in separate sheets.
    • In several drawings but by gathering the views by thickness.
    • Or to export a drawing by view.

  • Alignment“:

The various views can be aligned in a certain manner, check the option which you wish.


    • To force views exported horizontally by aligning axis X of the plan to the developed edge longest
    • To force views exported vertically by aligning the axis Y of the plan to the developed edge longest

  • Geometry“:

In export DXF DWG, it is possible to choose:

    • To export only the geometry.
    • To apply a color specific to the geometry.
    • To apply the geometry generated to a particular layer.
