2D CAD export starting from a cut of objects


In the modeler context, it is possible to export in a 2D CAD file a cut of 3D object.

The user chooses a reference plane and objects from which he wishes to export the section.

The intersection between the reference plane and selected objects made a 2D projection of points, lines and faces. These entities are exported in a CAD file.

This export allows especially to switch from 3D model to 2D model.

The possible export formats are:

  • CATIA V5
  • STEP
  • SAT


The access (in the modeler context) to the 2D CAD export is:

  • By menu: Project > 2D CAO Export > 2D Export 2D to a … file
