Is there a way to export a plane/face as a .SVG?

Having access to have the faces saved as .SVG would make the transformation into CNC easier.

    DXF export seems to be broken: if I export from a sketch, or from a drawing, the resulting file is invalid.

    With Inkscape, it shows an empty content.

    With the online converter mentioned above (http://image.online-convert.com/convert-to-svg) it says that the DXF file is invalid.

    I am also looking for a way to export drawings, but can't find any solution. Honestly, an SVG export would be the easiest, as it's a much better documented format, and all the existing tools support it, whereas each DXF reader has its own twirks which makes it incompatible with the other ones.

    I am pretty sure it was available in July, when I used it for another project. Was it removed?
