Can't export CGM file

Can't export CGM file

Can't export CGM file

I am trying to export some drafting data so that I can place it into a PowerPoint presentation.  I have used TIFF files, but the quality is not that great.  I tried to export a CGM but nothing happens.  Any ideas?

RE: Can't export CGM file

UG will not export the drawing views from the drawing application. You would have export the drawing sheet as a DWG file and then import it into a modeling view, then export that as a CGM. An alternative that I like to use is a software called SnagIt it is easy to use, gives you a quality image that you can add mark-ups to and is cheap. You can try it for free as well. You can find it at www.downloads.com

I know this reply is a bit late but I hope it helps.

Thanks rhubert, I'll have to give SnagIt a try

RE: Can't export CGM file

I am using NX, and have had no problems exporting CGMs from the drawing application.  The area I have had problems is getting the CGM to display properly.  This was solved by loading different CGM viewers until we found one that worked to our satisfaction.  Unfortunately I don't remember the source we used for the viewer.
