exporting model options

How do we export model options?

    As an AccuMark zip file or DXF?

    Is it possible to export as both? If so, how do I do both?

    When you Export AccuMark zip files from AccuMark Explorer, there is an option "Include Components" and that will include the model and all the pieces associated with it, including the options.  This method is best when you are sending the data  to another AccuMark. 

    If you are exporting to diferent CAD system, export the model as ASTM using the Data Conversion Utility or PDS.

    Thank you Kathy Valade.

    When we export model options ASTM by DCU, the options do not send unless they are all on the first model editor page, and then it does not pair up the pieces for the various options (like switching a long sleeve for a short sleeve).  So the model options feature doesn't really work for people who are not using a Gerber Zip file.

    Any ideas?

    Hello everyone.

    I would also like to know the answer to this question about the options that do not convert to DXF format.
