Exporting Sheet view to DWG

Ian M.


I cannot get my sheet to export to DWG in a way that preserves the look of my sheet.  I want to send my sheet to my engineer, but the "export viewports as 2D graphics in model space" adds lines that are not visible in my sheet view, making the resulting DWG file unnecessarily complex for the engineer, and requiring tiresome editing on his part to get a DWG file that he can use.


For example, in my Vectorworks 2019 file, I have turned off the classes for the exterior finish, sheathing and interior finish, and I am only displaying the wall framing.  When I export "using flattened 2d Graphics", hidden wall components are unhidden and added to the file (see attached dwg.pdf).  Also, my Vectorworks file hides the door leaf and swing, but the exported dwg file show a bright green lines in the door opening - where do those come from?
