Is there a way to hide project geometry from model sketch? I am modeling a sheetmetal part where I need to sketch centermaks, part number etc. for laser cutting. I want to use xy planes for symmetry reasons when sketching, but I don't want them to appear in dxf. This is a problem if I create a dxf directly from the model.
Usually I create dxf files from drawing by adding new sheet where I create flat pattern view from the spesific part (excluding machinigs etc, only thermal cut boundaries visible). In the drawing I am allso able to show model sketches and hide unwanted project geometry. Is it possible to include these sketches to dxf?
2. Include model sketches to view. Or you can make the sketch in the drawing view as well!
3. Set line coulous or hide lines etc.
4. delete drawing border & text field from the sheet
5. Save copy as "xxxxxx.dxf"
6. Options -> data scaling -> "Base view scale - Model Space" Be careful with this. Remember Stonehenge scene in the Spinal Tap!
7. Make sure the "Model Geometry Only" is NOT chosen. Drawing border & txt field were deleted from the sheet, so they are not included in the dxf either. Instead, this setting does include the sketches.
8. Ready -> save. Voilá.. Skethes are visible allso in the dxf file. Line colors etc. as determined in the drawing view.
