DWG Export Viewport - Convert to 2D in Model Space


Hi Jim,

I want a Sheet Layer and it's viewports to be converted into lines and hatches when exported?not the whole design layer. And not contained within a cropped reference as they do now.

The why;

-We have to issue drawings of airport tenancy fitouts to consultants that contain only a single tenancy (out of hundreds). As you can imagine, the base airport plans are massive, and confuse the daylights out of the consultants when they explode the base plan in AutoCAD. All they have then is a massive plan and no idea where there base drawings have gone to.

-This issue is the same for plans and section detail SLVP's, that when exploded are a mess of linework over all of the other SLVPs (now in Model Space) that were part of the original Sheet Layer.

-Also, when we issue these files, we have literally hundreds of drawings to issue in a set.


This is a related post, but the work around only seems to work for rendered VP's.

Hi Pat,

Thanks for that. I use that process regularly for 3D SLVPs. Is there a way to do that with SLVPs in Top/Plan view? Thanks.
