What the heck are used to be able to save as a DXF And import into my CAD cam software. Now if I import as an AI file it doesn't come in to scale. Seems funny they would get rid of this option even if perhaps it is not optimal for some reason.

Hi Ryan, Monika is right. DXF is still available in Export options.  If this option is not avaialbe at your end, please resetting preferences ( https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html#setting_illustrator_preferences ).  Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.  Regards, Srishti

Hello,

I have the same problem. export to DWG or DXF disappeared.

Reseting the preferences didnt help at all. Reinstalling Illustrator didnt help as well.

 

I hope somebody can help me.
