How to print Vector Output from Layout Detail Views?

It appears that any geometry inside detail views on a layout page printed gets rasterized, lines and surfaces. Is there a way to force vectorization inside these views so that the results (e.g. in a PDF file) were real lines/hatches?

Hi Daniel -

That’s not true. If you only have curves and hatches or details in wireframe mode, the PDF will be vector.

Being able to export shaded surfaces to a vector format has been high on my personal wishlist since I started using Rhino in 1997 - easier wished for than done…

No worries, at least I’m certain now that the way to work with sections in Rhino is to make2d and move it to layout view or stick with raster output for as long as legally possible.
