This is just food for thought... One of the things that I really like about DW is that when you export a 2D rastor image from a 'wireframe' or 'hidden line' view ALL of the lines end up only one pixel wide. If you've ever exported a rastor file from most CAD programs into PhotoShop to add the artistic touches, you know that the lines can be to fat, to thin, anti-alliased, may be not...with DW the lines are always simply: the thinnest (1 pixel) with no anti-alliasing. That means you can 'mask' cleaner; you also easily remove the lines if you would like or just leave as thin outlining. I'll take a CAD drawing like a Site Plan or Floor Plan into DW first before taking them over into PhotoShop were all the artistic work begins.

See ya
