Export 2D Part Projection

This feature was introduced in version 6.0.0.

This module allows you to export one or more parts 2D projection in one operation.

You can enable it from three places:

  • From Parts List to export all parts.

  • From a group of the Parts List to export all the parts of the group.

  • From part's properties dialog to export edited parts.

Each part will be exported in a separate file. All files will be placed in the directory which will be named according to the name of the part's material and the thickness (or section).


Supported Formats

Cutting diagrams can be exported into files with the following formats:

Export options

  • Unit : Defines the unit used in the exported file.

  • Projection : Define the viewed face of the part : 2D Front View or 2D Rear View.

  • Anchor point : This options preserves the location of the coordinate axes of the SketchUp component of this part in the exported file (Project the part's origin). Otherwise the smallest coordinate of the bounding box is used as location of the origin of the coordinate axes (Default).

  • Smoothing : Smooth circles and arcs. Learn more.

  • Merging Mode : Learn more

    • Default : The part shape is exported with one layer per depth.

    • Outline + Drillings + Merge : Activates the separation of the outer contour of parts from their holes, as well as the merging of depths for each cavity.

  • Paths : Enables the use of edges, which are not associated with a face contained in the part, to export them as a path. Learn mode.

  • Parts colors : Customize the line and fill (SVG only) colors of exported parts.

  • Drillings colors : Customize the line and fill (SVG only) colors of exported part's drillings.

  • Paths colors : Customize the line color of exported paths.
