3D View exported as 2D line drawing

I'm using TC Pro 20 and I want to export or convert the view of a 3D model into a 2D drawing. To be more specific: I've created a 3D model of two taurus interlocked, then I rotated the 3D image until the view was what I wanted, now I'm trying to take this view and convert or export the view into a 2D line drawing so that I can engrave it onto an object.  I've tried exporting the view into a PDF file, but the image does not have true vector lines (the lines are broken images and cannot be easily converted to toolpaths).

Not sure which forum heading this should be under, as I have queried through the 2D to 3D threads and the 3D to 2D threads as well as the CAM stuff.

Thanks in advance for the help,
