I’ve been looking for a way to streamline my workflow by being able to export a Pen Plus view as vector paths for editing in Adobe Illustrator. I’ve used the ‘Make2d’ command as I had seen suggested in other posts, but if I export as a PDF the ‘vector’ option exports all the lines in the design - whereas ‘raster’ exports only the visible surfaces which is what I want. The Illustrator Live Trace tool isn’t precise enough to convert the raster PDF into editable paths (I’ve tried adjusting the default line width, higher resolution, larger paper sizes etc…) and nothing seems to work.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to export a Pen Plus view of on only visible surfaces as vector paths? I’ve attached screen shots of the results of both raster and vector PDF export options for reference, any help on this would be extremely appreciated.
