The hardware tech writers at my company use Solidworks creations in
their Frame docs. They told me that they don't use the DXF file because
they are so large. Our engineers create them for 11 x 17 paper. They
always convert the DXF file to a high-res JPEG and then import to Frame
and scale it down. So yes, they lose the vector.

Subject: Importing images from a CAD system

I have a project where I may need to import wireframe images (basically,
perspective line drawings) from a Solidworks CAD system into a Frame 7.0
document. Assuming that vector format will produce the best resolution,
has anyone had any problems importing DXF images directly into Frame? Or
is it better to convert to another format first?
