Can you please show us what exactly you have in that intertwine?

 

When expanding an Intertwine it is actually just a stack of objects with clipping masks. The rasterization should not be caused by the Intertwine, so it would really help if you could post some details.

I can repeat the problem, create 2 intertwining circles, save as PDF with the Illustrator default settings and you get a bitmap.

I would advise to report it here:

I'll add here that live Intertwine in a fully-vector graphic saved as .ai and placed in InDesign also results in rasterization of the Intertwine. Full expansion is the only way I've found to keep it all vector.

From what I have seen this is a problem for all PDF settings. I solved it by expanding appearance before PDF export.

I had the same issue i place AI files directly in Indesign and after exporting to PDF i only see LowRes pictures.

I expanded the intertwine object en all problems solved 😉 BUT

It would be nice if they come with a solution for this so we do not have to make a duplicate as backup for changes afterwords.
