for info. I use e-Print from

to save files in many different formats Note that 3D graphics (parts, assemblies) won't be exported as real vectors, they will be saved as bitmaps whatever format you choose.

Hi Alex,
You can make drawings of the parts and save the drawings as Autocad DWG or as DXF. These files are vector oriented and there are a lot of programs out there to convert these files.

You can print EPS files directly from SolidWorks, if you 1) download and install "windows xp converter pack" (consult google for details) 2) install for example QMS-PS printer driver (any model, you don't have to have the actual printer) 3) Print to file using that printer 4) rename the printed file extension .prn to .eps
--> voilá, your SW is now capable for exporting EPS files.
Some other printer drivers may work as well.
Hope this helps!

Beg pardon, but . . . don't you think that 300 megabytes of disk space is a bit much to "pay" for that capability? Unless, of course, you think you'd like to have all those Converter Pack extras (which to me largely seem like I can easily do without). Just wondering if someone can identify a DLL in that Converter Pack that does the job without all the bogus bonus?
