Default Capturing a 2D picture/drawing of a model.

Has anyone captured or exported a flexim model to a 2D floorplan? Could be CAD or any other format.

A project that I am considering requires the user to be able to alter rooms, furniture, etc to establish most efficient layout. Then to send drawings of this layout to other, non-flexsim, users.

Obviously we can screen dump but it loses granularity if I zoom out too far, to get all the model in, and it also loses measurable scale.
I imagine that exporting to 3D CAD would not be an option at the moment, but would be a very useful feature for the future.

Thanks, Kenny

cad, export, floorplan
