Hello I'm having trouble making a DWG or DXF file from a IPT file. I use Autodesk Inventer Professional 2011. I'll give you a run down as to what I do to......

 

Once my part is designed in Inventor I do:

-Save as

-save copy as 

-and I go to click on DWG or DXF but I do not have that listing. 

 

Ive attached a screenshot. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Hello: I wish to save my 2D drawing as a DXF in inventor.


Currently, I save it as a DWG in inventor as you said above and then converted it in AUTOCAD to a DXF.  I will continue to do this unless it's an option in inventor.


Thanks


John

Simply Save Copy as type dxf.

 

or

if the part is flat you don't even need a 2d drawing.  Simply click on the face and select Export to dxf.
