DXF Export CF

DXF Export is a great feature, however it does not convert faces that are not the full thickness of the body. As in- pockets and slots are not included.
How do I fix it?
Thank you,

    You can make a drawing. Delete all title block entities. place the view you want to make the .dxf and scale 1:1. Export the .dxf from the drawing tab and you should have all the geometry.

    Thank you @bryan_lagrange. However I need more automated solution. When I need to flat 20 boxes and extract geometry for these parts. Also currently I am using the drawings tabs with 1:1 scale and looking to avoid this extra few steps.
