The Export unfolded part tool is a very convenient command for exporting sheets metal part to dxf or dwg files. It is possible to export a single sheet metal, a selection of sheet metal or all the sheets metal of the scene.
After releasing the tool, a dialog box with optins appears, this is divided into three areas:
If the element is mirrored, the char M is added to the end of the exported file name. This is done in order to be sure that two parts having the same informations (PartName, PartNumber, Material etc.) but with different mirror state, are both exported to DXF/DWG.
