in ST3 - while you are in psm environment you can use the "save as flat" from the head menu. if flatten pattern exist it saves as dxf, if not it prompt for selecting face and edge.

 

why do you need a separate program to do this?

Alon Raviv,

 

Thank you for the prompt reply.

 

Manually we are selecting the face and edge to convert the dxf files.

 

We have a small code in vb .net, its converts .psm to .dxf by using "saveasflatdxf" method. it is generates dxf file but my problem is its taking the default orientation.

 

Here i want a single click dxf conversion, because we are converting the number of files, so that its consuming more time. To save this time process we need create add-inn. We need the user required orientation .dxf file by selecting the user.

 

Thanks & Regards.
