I believe you're looking for the DXF format, right? DXF export is supported in AC3D...

Or maybe STL, which AC3D also imports/exports (ascii).

Thanks for the speedy responses having spoken to our mechanical designer it appears what he really would like is the file in either IGES, STEP or SAT format.
Does this make sense to anyone and is it possible

Many Thanks once again

Makes sense and possible

I'm afraid it's not high priority though, sorry :cry:
