Does anybody know if you can do this or if there is a free plugin.
I tried using DXF but this fails to open in AC. even after I trippled everything.

ok I got DXF working.. but I still dont like the way everything is trippled.
(this is just so I can pass some ideas I have about a construction on to an Architect)

Any ideas?

I haven't tried bringing LW objects over into AuthCAD yet, but if the only purpose in your case is to convey some ideas to an Architect, it might be easier to just bring the objects into Layout and output a handful of .jpg images from different angles and email them to him.

Just a suggestion.

There is a little bit more to it than that. I'm trying to save him re-drawing time with my mods, and then he can put in all the relevent notes etc. If it works out, its something we will be able to do on a regular basis.
