Hi there, 

 

Can someone please help me work out how to export a dwg (autoCAD Drawing) file in illustrator?

 

I've created a logo and my client is asking for it, but he says it keeps showing up as a line stroke instead of the logo being filled in, how do i fix this, am i saving it wrong? see example below

A DWG is essentially only lines and fills are limited to what is actually avialable in CAD programs, most of the time those being elemenatary colors from a limited palette or "named colors". In your example the custom blue background and white fill may not translate, so create a proper black and white version, meaning black text on white canvas.
