Tutorial – Exporting GIS Data to DXF / DWG

This tutorial covers export options from QGIS to DXF format. Troubleshoots potential problems and provides work around in case export fails. This process comes in handy when needing to edit or manipulate linework in a program outside of GIS. Once in DXF format, data can be plotted to PDF or saved as DWG which can be read by other programs such as SketchUp.
