Dear Sir,

please tell me whether I can do 2D modelling (area) in proe and export as an DXF file

waiting for reply

You can model in Pro/E, then create a drawing and export this as a DXF.

If you just want to use 2D, you could use a sketched datum curve.

To make a DXF:

Pro 2001 - File > Save A Copy > DXF

Pro 2000i2 - File > Export > DXF

Note - The display mode usually has to be Shaded to get a DXF out.
