3D to 2D

Arch desktop has a lot of 3D object.
For the sake of sending dwgs to other companies that
do not need the 3D info is it possible to "flatten" the drawing?
I would like to make it 2D to make a smaller dwg file.
Thank you for your time and have a good day

be available to be downloaded, and will also come on the next vip disk. try

Lets say your not a VIP member.
If I convert to wmf the scale gets all messed up.
Is there a way to preserve the scale when making a wmf?
is there a VBA routine that will help?
thank you for your time and have a good day

You could try the SuperExplode.ARX or use the Migration Assistant to SAVEAS
to a R12 dwg file (DXF won't cut it).

I went directly to the site through the link, They didn't ask for any member
info. The flatten command is part of the latest express tools download. I
think these downloads are for anyone, VIP subscribers get it sent to them.
