Save As ACIS (*.sat) and click on the Options button and specify ver 7.

Are you trying to save a drawing, or save a model? If the former, you can simply SaveAs a .DWG or .DXF (be sure to check the Options in the dialog box). If the latter, then the advice about ACIS export is valid, but also there is a a free Add-In that you can find simply by doing a Net search for Dxf3DExport. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll post it on my Web site.

I have found Dxf3DExport and created a folder in the SolidWorks folder in Program Files called Apps, and put in the Dxf3DExport.dll file, as instructed, but the 3D DXF option is not available, either as an "add-in", or as a "save as" option. The creators of Dxf3DExport appear to have only tested this in SW 2004 - has anyone managed to get it working in SW 2006 SP 3.1 / XP SP2 ?

I have got Dxf3DExport to appear as a toolbar (I was expecting it to be a "save as" option, but this seems way out of its league) - unfortunately all it does is create a mesh of the part, which is not much help except as a very basic viewer system - has anyone had any success in creating proper 3D dxf files from SolidWorks that will open in AutoCAD ?

Dxf3DExport doesn't appear as an Add-In -- it appears as a new pulldown menu in both Part and Assembly files. It will likely appear just to the right of the Tools pulldown menu. It does NOT appear as a pulldown menu in Drawing files, simply because Drawings are only 2D by definition.
