I'm trying to export (V 12, selected only checked) from a sheet view to DXF or DWG for laser cutting.

Hiding the layers with title block and dimensions works in SharkCAD, however the dimensions appear in the DXF and DWG. The title block does not.

Am I missing something or is this a bug? Is there any workaround other than deleting all dimensions before export?

DXF/DWG by design exports the entire file including layers.

You could try exporting "Selected Only".

make sure, that your sheet view is not scaled. Otherwise your dxf-export will be also scaled but nobody know the scale and you get a wrong sized laser cutting.

I checked "selected only". The DXF contains all layers (that could be fixed), dimensions and drawing end up in the same DXF layer "sheet view drawing1", a dimensions layer is not in the DXF. So it is impossible to turn off dimensions. Anyway, they should not be there.

Yes, I noticed that. Has been this way for years, could be fixed eventually. I'm using 1:1 A3, A2 etc sheets for laser cutting...
