The Layout DXF Export is an application that allows exporting the layout graphics to
AutoCAD DXF format. The DXF file is an ASCII file containing necessary vectorial
information of the entities present in the layout. The necessary graphics like copper,
texts, traces, 3D-information etc must be selected exclusively from the Parameters
tab to export to AutoCAD DXF format.
