    Default Making 3d views into 2d linework

    When a Revit model view is exported to AutoCAD, it exports it as a 3d solid. If you don't want a 3d solid, but a 2d representation instead, drag the view on to a sheet and export the sheet view to AutoCAD. The titleblock, etc will be placed in paper space and the view will be placed in model space as a 2d block.

    Thanks very much for the post, this one solved a major headache in our current project. Having to create the 3D view, export to CAD, recreate the view in CAD (from the solid), flatten, save, then import back into a Revit drafting view was exceedingly painful. I think it's about time that this process become completely integrated into Revit; after all, if we can flatten and export a 3D view in-sheet to a CAD block, why can't we simply "export" that view straight to a drafting view?

    If you didn't know already. How are users to make the connection with the name "Freeze Drawing". Doesn't sound like flatten view to me either.
