What better format for exporting Hexagon Curve ?

Hi guys , I know there are not much people use Hexagon anymore and straight going to Blender these day . But I really like Curve tools in Hexagon . For me those lots much better than what Blender`s curve offer

So my question, what format to exporting Hexagon Curve so I can use in Blender or any 3D software ?

Thanks

    Hexagon doesn't export curves.
    One can add thickness, 3 is the lowest setting. Then export that .obj. In the other program(s) maybe you can copy/paste the line to create a curve there?

    Strictly speaking, not true. You can export them as DXF. Unfortunately, not all curve features are available and Blender doesn't read them.

    Thank you, did not know that DXF were curves. Never worked with those.

    Hexagon will not export curves, only line segments. (Hexagon DG is collapsed on export)

    You can export the line segments via .Obj format, which Blender will import.
