Exporting Sheet Layers of elevations & Sections to.DWG


I have attempted to convert Sheets to DWGs for transwmittal to co-consultants, e.g. engineers. I find that the DWG produced of teh live sections and viewport elevations are all wire frames in the resultant DWG file. I typically proof all my exports on a PC running ACAD LT 2004.

I use the viewport method to compose exterior elevations and now, with live sections.

I expected that updated, hidden line viewports would export as a 2D representation of the elevations and sections. Not so.

I find that I get the "line drawing" results by doing a "work Around". I select the viewports & update them to make all rendered hidden line. Then I convert copy to lines, Hide the viewports in an invisible class and then export to .DWG.

Is there a better way to do this? My supporting cast of consultants do not deal with 3D wireframe in ACAD very well.
