Hello there guys.
I am facing a problem at work. I have modeled an injection molded part and extracted the mould in Solidworks. The thing i need now is to extract the sketch of the bottom profile of my part and save it as dwg so that i can lasercut a sheet metal which will be used for protecting the mold when sandblasting it. My question is how can i extract a dwg "sketch" from solidworks.
Thank you for your time and your rensponses,
I'm using the german SW version, so excuse wrong terms.
this worked just fine Frederik! Thank you very much!
Open new SW drawing
Insert view required
Adjust drawing limits as necessary
Save as dxf or dwg
After extracting if you wish to work directly with the DWG file... You can also go to the SOLIDWORKS website, sign-in and download DraftSight® a professional grade, free 2D CAD product lets professional CAD users, students and educators create, edit and view DWG files :-) http://www.solidworks.com/sw/products/free-cad-software-downloads.htm

You can save it as DXF. This will be a 2D file with the profile of the selected view.
Or you can try to make a drawing from that file, generate multiple views and then save as DXF.
I think this it's the most simple way to obtain a 2D profile.
Right but not asked. He wanted a dwg file
