DXF Export for Alibre
Design is an AutoCAD DXF file export plug-in for Acrobat®. This
plug-in gives Acrobat the ability to export 3D solid data from a
Acrobat part and assembly document to 3D solids or meshes in an
AutoCAD DXF file.
DXF Export for Acrobat reads the solid models from the current Acrobat part or assembly and writes them as 3D solids in an AutoCAD DXF file. It can also tessellate the solid bodies into individual triangular meshes. These meshes are then exported to a DXF file as 3D Polyface mesh, 3D Face, Line or Point objects.
DXF Export for Acrobat is very easy to use. It adds new commands to Acrobat. Once installed, it automatically loads itself into Acrobat and adds a new submenu called "DXFExport" to the Acrobat menu containing these newly
DXF Export for Alibre Design comes with detailed documentation for each command as well as a tutorial to get you started in the shortest possible time.

The DXF File Format
DXF is a format used for storing two and three dimensional design data and metadata. It is the native format for the AutoCAD Computer Aided Design package, as well as IntelliCAD (and its variants), and PowerCAD. DXF is supported non-natively by several hundred other software applications.
DXF (denoted by the .DXF filename extension) was the native file format for the Interact CAD package, developed by Mike Riddle in the late 1970s, and subsequently licensed by Autodesk in 1982 as the basis for AutoCAD. From 1982 to 2007, Autodesk created versions of AutoCAD which wrote no less than 18 major variants of the DXF file format, none of which it publicly documented.
The DXF format, has become a de facto standard for CAD drawing interoperability. It has been estimated that there are in excess of two to four billion DXF files in existence.
