How to export a DXF file with punch points from an unfold?

A - answer In the unfold properties (model tree > "Edit Flat Pattern Definition"), use the option to display punch features as points, center marks ("Center Mark Only"). The subsequent DXF exports will represent the punch positions as points (POINT entities) only.

In the model (unfold) tree then choose the context menu function "Save Copy As ..." and use the wizard to set the DXF layer and geometry options as needed.
