Save flat pattern as dxf with iLogic rule - Inventor 2012

Hello. I have read all the topics about rule that save flat pattern (.ipt) as .dxf file. Unfortunately, It doesn't work with Inventor 2012. I found rule by Rob Cohee and it works but it saves all lines. I need dxf file with only outer and inner profile, no bend lines. 

Do you know any rule that I mean? Help would be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance. 

add the layers you don't want to the Invisiable layer switch in the sout = line in Robs rule. It will look sort of like this

 

sOut = "FLAT PATTERN DWG?AcadVersion=2000&OuterProfileLayer=Burn&InteriorProfilesLayer=Burn&InvisibleLayers=IV_UNCONSUMEND_SKETCHES;IV_ALTREP_BACK;IV_ALTREP_FRONT;IV_ARC_CENTERS;IV_TOOL_CENTER_DOWN;IV_TOOL_CENTER;IV_ARC_CENTERS;IV_TANGENT;IV_BEND;IV_BEND_DOWN&SplineTolerance Double 0.01"

Could you add color of bend line and insert a comment about <partnumber> <thinkness> <material> inside dxf file?

The latest DXF Exporter can do all that and some more.
