When exporting NX .dxf files and beginning to remove notes and such...

When exporting NX .dxf files and beginning to remove notes and such...

(OP)
Hello (This is a simple question from a novice neutral )

I use NX to export .DXF files
-> Then my company uses DraftSight Free to "clean" sheetmetal.DXF files =>remove bending lines, notations and such extra marks that NX leaves.

Do I really have to manually remove "those extra lines" with delete(I'm new and people that have been like 10 years in this company just use manual deleting ponder) or is there some kind of magic layer trick so I can remove everything extra from the drawing with a simple click or two ?

.DXF goes to CNC-machines and I have to "clean" the sheetmetal .DXFs

I tried clean but it can not remove the annotations or such...upsidedown

If you could post a sample dwg I could give a definite answer within a couple of minutes. Other than that, you could try the isolatelayer and unisolatelayer commands.

Hope that helps,
Nathan Binder

Attached example file....
It should be "cleaned"=Meaning no bend lines or annotations just leaving the outlines.(for sheet metal CNC-machine)

- Now people here are only manually deleting them by using the "red rubber=delete"-function with mouse.
  • I am looking for a simpler solution like deleting a layer perhaps ? Does it exist ?
