Exporting to DXF format


Figure 27-1 shows the part of a DXF file that defines a line. Not only are objects defined, but all layers, linetypes, and other settings are defined as well. The file lists codes that specify a certain type of data (for example, the X coordinate of a line’s endpoint), followed by the values for the codes (for example, 7.55). Because most CAD programs accept this format, you can export to DXF and send the file to someone else who can import it into another CAD program.
