    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me why is it in Solidworks 2013 when I go to save a drawing as a DXF it is 22kb, but when i use to save it in Solidworks 2010 it was only 59mb which was perfect..
    Also can you tell me how to fix it?

    Thanks

  • Are you complaiing about the file size being smaller by a significant order of magnitude?

    The SW drawing contains extensive links to the parent models, while the DXF is just dumb lines. It's not unusual to have big differences in file size.
