I do this a lot. Don't over-complicate things. Create a SolidWorks
drawing from your model, save it as a dxf or dwg file and open it in
Illustrator. The other possibility is to print the drawing as a pdf
file if you have a pdf creator. By the way - this is going to be
included in 2004.
By the way, I have been requesting the ability to export from sWorks
as an eps file for several years.

One issue that isn't immediately apparent when exporting a tiff (File ->
Save as -> *.tif ) is that if you do this from
the model file (part or assembly) the export is done at screen resolution,
which generally is of fairly low quality.
Instead, put the desired view into a drawing, shaded or hlr, whatever. From
the drawing, you can do the same
tiff export, but now you can control the dpi quality of the output. If you
are going to make an image on a
decent printer, you'll probably want to use 300dpi for shaded, and 600 dpi
for a line drawing. The
file size can get pretty large.
Hope this helps.
