So you’ve designed your first sheet metal part in SOLIDWORKS. Your next natural question is “How do I export this to DXF so I can manufacture it?” Let’s take a look.

You can create *.dxf files of sheet metal flat patterns from sheet metal part documents without flattening the model or creating a drawing. To convert the Sheet Metal Flat Patterns to DWG / DXF file follow the steps given below.

Step 1: To get flatten view, simply click Flatten under Sheet Metal Command Manager Row

Step 2: To Export to DWG / DXF file right click on the flat view and select the option “Export to DXF / DWG”.

Step 3: You will get a DXF/ DWG Output Property Manager, under Entities to Export, clear Bend Lines to generate the DXF file without bend lines in it and select the entities whichever is needed.
