DXF export from a given view

Laszlo KREKACS
Hey,

I would like to ask, if its possible to export to .dxf from a given view?
Ie. From top view I would like if anything will be exported to dxf.

Or only 2D primitives are possible?

Best,
 Laszlo

The projection() function will do what you need. See

You can only export 2D currently but you can project or cut a 3D primitive into 2D if that's what you want.
