Is there a way to get the lines of the shaded viewport as vector output?

… I try to avoid _make2d, because it quite slow at my model and there are to much lines. The viewport lines are perfect, but I need a dashed line version of the view. So I like to export it and apply the dash line style in a vector program. How can it be done?


It can’t. Otherwise Make2D wouldn’t exist. The hidden-line viewport stuff uses a bunch of “trickery” that doesn’t actually make curves, it’s some sort of shading that looks like curves.

Hi Micha,

Is it an option to export to AI?
You could import it back again and set linetype.


I hoped to find a fast direct way without the slow make2D and the needed clean up. But right, I use make2d now. I hope in the future we will see line types at the different display modes too.
