Home Designer Pro Export Layout to .dxf?

Recommended Posts

I am currently using an evaluation copy of the software to understand more before I buy.

 

I am a CAD veteran with over 30 years various tools starting with Computervision, Unigraphics, SDRC Master Series, AutoCAD, Pro/Engineer, Solidworks, etc....

 

It does not look like Home Designer Pro has very robust drafting and annotation tools, and frankly I think I would be much faster using AutoCAD for annotation.

 

So I would like to export a layout file out of Home Designer Pro as a dxf file so I can import into AutoCAD and do final detailing there.  Will this work?

 

A specific example of what I would like to do is create a section view of a wall in Home Designer Pro, create a layout of it, and then detail and annotate in AutoCAD. 

 

Am I not understanding how this works?  Is there another way to do this?

 

Thanks

Yes, that should work perfectly, unlike a ".dwg" file the layers exported will be only on a single named layer.
