Export face to DWG + info

Hi all,

I need to find a way to export the selected face to dwg and to have the Part Number and if possible the description written under the exported face. I don't know if it's possible to do this. I know it's possible to export programmatically the selected face, but is it possible to get the name + description into the drawing too?

 

We're just looking for a way to "automate" the creation of our laser drawings..

 

Thanks

It would be nice to see some samples - your typical face in Inventor and the same face in AutoCAD with required text labels.

Do you work with planar faces only or not?

I've finally decided to export the flat pattern since all our laser parts should be drawn as sheet metal. I wanted the export face because that is currently what we use to make our laser drawings.

Thanks for trying to help me anyway and sorry for the late response

Hi there,

 

No problem. :smileyhappy:

As I understand you have a working solution now? - that's the main thing.

 

Cheers,
