In the list field under Reaction on "export to CAD" you can find the following two options:

"Export to CAD" tabbed page

"Export to CAD" tabbed page

  • Export selected 2D derivation view if 2D window is open, else export 3D model (Default)

    When using a 2D CAD system you click on the button 2D derivation in order to create the 2D derivation.

    -> The 2D view dialog box opens. There you can select the desired view.

    Furthermore different functions such as Dimensioning mode [134] for example are available. More information on this is found under Section 3.1.10.4, “Context menu and buttons "2D view" window ”.

    The option Technical views is not available in this mode.

    [Note] Note

    When using a 2D CAD and clicking on the button Transfer to CAD, without having created a 2D derivation, a default derivation is transferred to the CAD system.

  • Always ask, if more than one alternative exists

    When using a 2D CAD system or CAD system with 2D option the Choose view to pass... dialog box is opened by clicking on the Transfer to CAD button regardless of whether the 2D view dialog box (called by clicking on the button 2D derivation) is opened or not.

    When the Choose view to pass... dialog box is opened, then the selection made there is transferred in any case (even if another selection has been made in the 2D view dialog box.

    When a pure 3D CAD system is used, the Choose view to pass... dialog box is not opened.

    In the Choose view to pass... dialog box also Technical views (if available) can be chosen.

[Note] Note

The effect of the setting Reaction on "export to CAD" has differs depending on the used CAD system:

  1. CAD system has only ONE environment -> So only 2D or 3D is active.

    (valid for SW,SE,NX,OSDM,INV)

    The setting has NO effect.

  2. CAD system can handle multiple environments. -> Then the selection dialog will appear.

    (valid for Pro-E and AutoCAD)

    The setting takes effect.

Dialog boxes "2D view" and "Choose view to pass..."

Dialog boxes "2D view" and "Choose view to pass..."

Detailed information on 2D derivation is found under Section 3.1.10, “ Create 2D derivation ”.
