Re: Inventor 2013 export to dxf?

07-27-2012 09:49 AM in reply to: lpbug

You don't have the option in the DXF Out to select only the profile for exporting. Yes you can export your drawing to DXF but you don't have the option to select what you want to export.

 

We do a lot of CNC profile burning and on some shapes we need to Save-As to DWG and then go in and select what we want to export. I guess one could have a IDW template without any border of title block so all we would get is the model.

I'm not sure, either, what Kevin is referring to, but I also confirmed that drawing export to DXF in 2013 works as it has in previous versions.  Blair, I've always been able to export DXF with Model Geometry Only; in fact if I choose to scale to 1:1 in Model Space, Model Geometry Only is forced.

I'll have to look at the 1:1 option, never in all the years (IV4) have I looked at the 1:1 option in the DXF.

Hi Guys,

 

I am so sorry that I made a mistake here, Inventor supports to export DRAWING to DXF format via Save As -> Save Copy As -> DXF Files dropdown.

 

My fault to make you confuse and inconvenience !!!

Hi

 

A little tip. If you hold down "ctrl" and  "shift" and then click new you get a dialog box. If you then choose drawing you get a empty sheet :smileyhappy:

How is this different from just clicking on New and choosing drawing?  Does this have anything to do with exporting to DXF?

Re: Inventor 2013 export to dxf?

01-16-2013 03:22 AM in reply to: jletcher

Hi,

 

I am having the same problem as mentioned in this thread.

 

When I try the 'Save copy as' DXF route it does not function. If I click the save button nothing happens and if I click the option button nothing happens either. In 2012 when you click the options button you would have got the option to change the export settings i.e. all sheets etc...

 

I do have the option to change the file formats via the drop down box in the 'save copy as' dialogue box and dxf etc are listed!

 

When I right click on the flat pattern in 'Model' there is no button for 'Export' in the list that appears. Therefore I cannot get to the Flat pattern dxf export options prompt as shown in this thread.

 

Its obvious you should be able to save as a dxf from an inventor idw as the buttons are there they are just not working!

 

Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Many thanks!
