I’m working with my engineer on designing a foundation for a project with expansive soils. I am trying to make his life easier and my bill cheaper by sharing my 3D model with him via a .DXF export. I gave up my AutoCAD license a while ago so I can’t test out the export and I can’t quite remember how everything gets translated over to AutoCAD.
I have my model organized in the typical way inside of SU pro 2018. Everything is drawn on layer 0 and then grouped. Only groups/components are moved to layers other than 0. I of course also have nested groups within groups.
Will groups and components export as blocks? What happens with the layer scheme used inside of SU? Should I go inside each layer and move the geometry to the layer that matches the group to make it easier for the engineer to hide/show what he wants to see? I know that text and dimensions don’t export (which I don’t have anyway) but are there any other tips you all could offer to help the hand off go as smoothly as possible?
thanks for any help you can provide
