Exporting inventor solid/assembly to dwg without tangent lines

Exporting inventor solid/assembly to dwg without tangent lines

(OP)
Is there a way to export a assembly or solid for that matter to DWG (for further autocad work) without all the tangent lines visible afterwards in the DWG?

Now I have to manually remove all the tangent lines before making it into a block witch is a pain..

RE: Exporting inventor solid/assembly to dwg without tangent lines

I have no idea what this means?
First you refer to assembly or solid (3D) and then you refer to manually removing lines 2D before making into block.
Can you attach example files here showing what you are doing?

Let me try to clarify dazed
I often work in autoauto with items first modelled in inventor.
At some point I therefor export the inventor part to a 2D DWG.

But then all the tangent lines are also exported which i dont need.
Now, is there a way to only export the visible lines of a part?



RE: Exporting inventor solid/assembly to dwg without tangent lines

Have you tried turning off the tangent edges in the Edit View box of an Inventor drawing view?

Also did you know you do not HAVE to export the Inventor views to DWG to have a block in AutoCAD? You can use the Design Center in AutoCAD and drag and drop them from any Inventor DWG.
