Export DXF Files
 
 
 

You can export a drawing as a DXF file, which contains drawing information that can be read by other CAD systems.

You can export a drawing as a DXF (drawing interchange format) file. DXF files are text or binary files that contain drawing information that can be read by other CAD programs. If you are working with consultants who use a CAD program that accepts DXF files, you can share a drawing by saving it as a DXF file.

You can control floating-point precision of the DXF format up to 16 decimal places and save the drawing in either ASCII or binary format. ASCII format results in a text file that you can read and edit; binary format results in a significantly smaller file that is faster to work with.

If you do not want to save the entire drawing, you can choose to export selected objects only. You can use this option to remove extraneous material from drawing files.
