Yes! DXF output can now contain full forward and rear view hidden line projections. For rear view, just make sure you have rear view ON in your Skalp style. The rear view will be represented using dashed polylines in the dxf.

Changed: In Skalp rules you can no longer setup target layers. We’ve replaced and simplified this feature: Instead, for dxf-export we now provide Layer Presets to control your layer output.

Front view lines will always be placed on the layer ‘Skalp-FrontView’ Rear view projection lines wil always be placed on the layer ‘Skalp- RearView’
For the section you have the following choices:

  • Section Layer ->Everything on layer ‘Skalp-Section’
  • Object Layers -> Every section polygon will be placed on a layer with the same name as the layer of the sectioned 3D object in SketchUp.
  • Material Layers -> Every section polygon will be placed on a layer named corresponding to the section material.

Every scene / view can be exported to dxf. But when the section plane isn’t aligned with the view there will be no hatches and no rear view projection in the exported dxf file. The forward view of the section can be in orthogonal or in perspective mode.
