Export ONLY profiles to PDF

vector-export
#1

Hi forum,

I would like to export the attached line drawing (scene 3) as a 2D vector file for further processing in a vector graphics program.

I have only selected “Profiles” under “View” -> “Edge Style” and deselected “Edges” for scene 3. However, with any kind of vector export, the edges still are exported in addition to the profiles, no matter whether I print to PDF or whether I export to PDF, DXF or EPS.

What can I do so that my vector export only contains profiles but not edges?

Never tried it, but that looks like the case

The same happens here too. My workaround is to export to DWG or DXF with the Profiles and “Separate on a layer” options enabled. Then you can erase all the lines on layer 0 or turn it off, leaving only the profiles.Downhill Bike Frame.dwg (193.9 KB)
