In blender render,

Goto>render settings


Then Tick>Freestyle SVG Export

Go back to>output Choose a file to place your rendered work

Then hit>Render

Your SVG is ready at the specified output location

Additionally, To prevent some object from rendering as SVG, On the material tab, just click on Transparency

There is now a better way to do this:

  • Simply select your grease pencil object in object mode

  • Go to File > Export > Grease Pencil as SVG or Grease Pencil as PDF
