Is there a way to save the model plan view as an image file such as JPEG, BMP, TIFF, or a CAD drawing such as a DXF or DWG?


There are a few options:

Export Print Preview to Image

Open the preview window by going to File > Print Preview. From the preview window, go to File > Export Document > Image File. You
will be able to save the file as a number of different image types.

Export to DXF

Go to File > Export > DXF. Then, open the DXF file in another application such as MicroStation or AutoCAD and export from there.


Use the PrintScreen / PrtSc button on your keyboard to take a screenshot of the plan view, then open an image editing application such as Microsoft Paint, paste, crop as needed, then save as an image file.
