Q - question

How to export layers to individual drawings?

A - answer Contents of the individual layers (objects) in a drawing can be splitted 'by layer' and exported to individual DWG files (with single layer) using the free LISP utility by CAD Studio - Lay2Dwg. For download on Download.

Just load the application with APPLOAD and start the LAY2DWG command. The command prompts for an optional filename prefix and then exports the contents of individual layers (or a given layer only) to separate DWG files.

You can enter layer lists in the form ("LayerA" "LayerB")
