DXF Export for Solid Edge is an AutoCAD DWG file export add-in for Solid Edge®. This add-in gives Solid Edge the ability to export 3D solid data from a Solid Edge part and assembly document to 3D solids or meshes in an AutoCAD DXF file.
DXF Export for Solid Edge reads the solid models from the current Solid Edge 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 Solid Edge is very easy to use. It adds new commands to Solid Edge. Once installed, it automatically loads itself into Solid Edge and adds a new ribbon bar to the Solid Edge user interface called "Add-Ins" containing these newly added commands.

Our licenses are single computer licenses and are locked to each computer they are installed on. Basically, the license key is specific to the computer's Host ID (the MAC address of the computer), and will not work on another computer. The installer picks up the physical MAC address of the network card connected to the computer which is basically “Ethernet adapter Network Connect Adapter”. So unless you change your network card, the key will always work even if you reinstall your operating system. If your internal network is periodically assigning a different Host ID to your computer, then please find a solution for this with your IT department.

The AutoCAD DXF (Drawing Interchange Format, or Drawing Exchange Format)
is a CAD data file format, developed by Autodesk as their solution for
enabling data interoperability between AutoCAD and other programs. DXF
was originally introduced in December 1982 as part of AutoCAD 1.0, and
was intended to provide an exact representation of the data in the
AutoCAD native file format, DWG (Drawing), for which Autodesk didn't
(and doesn't) publish specifications.
