PAC4SWX DXF/DWG options
PAC4SWX is a tool to print and convert SolidWorks drawing. With PAC4SWX you can choose
multiple drawings from your filesystem and print or convert all sheets of all
drawings in one step. PAC4SWX will take care of the different sheet sizes.
Set DXF/DWG options
You can set various options PAC4SWX will use for exporting for each sheet in
a SolidWorks drawing.
The settings can be saved on a user-bases in the main dialog. If you want to
store the settings in a file or read them from a file you may do so from the
The DXF/DWG option dialog is separated in two areas:
- Only on export per multisheet drawing
If this option ist set a SolidWorks multisheet drawing will only be given
once with the active sheet to SolidWorks to export as DXF/DWG. The default (unset)
will process every single sheet of a multisheet drawing.
With this option it is possible to make use of the multisheet DXF/DWG export
functions of SolidWorks 2006 and higher. You have to set up the correct
options in SolidWorks export options dialog to make a multisheet DXF/DWG.
- Choose directory for DXF/DWG files
If you set the option save in directory of drawing all exported
DXF/DWG files are saved to the directory, where the drawing is stored. If
you want to gather all exported DXF/DWG files in one directory uncheck this
option and enter a directory path in the textbox or use the button to browse
the directory (recommended).
- Naming standard for DXF/DWG files
You can choose whether the exported DXF/DWG files use the complete
drawing name or only the sheet names. If you choose use only sheet names
make sure, that all sheets in all drawing have unique names. If your
drawings have only one sheet the option use only file name may be
useful. Note: don't use the last setting if you have multi-sheet drawings.
Any existing DXF files in the target directory with the same name will be
overwritten without warning.
All DXF/DWG export parameters (i.e. AutoCAD version) from SolidWorks will be
used. Please change these parameters in SolidWorks if necessary.
