How to export object XYZ coordinates from AutoCAD drawing?

A - answer If you need a text file with coordinates of points (blocks) and polyline vertices from a DWG drawing you can use the VBA sample "ExportCoords" from Lesson 15 in the VBA programming for AutoCAD and Inventor lessons (in Czech).

Another way is using the XBODY.LSP Lisp utility (on helpdesk.cadstudio.cz) or the Excellink application.

Since AutoCAD 2008, you could also use the DATAEXTRACTION command.
