If you create drawing file for your part or assembly, you will be able to export the drawing as a DWG of DXF file. I don't believe you can export a part or assembly directly as DWG or DXF.

I wholly agree with what John just said.
To add to that though, I believe that there will soon be a 3-d dxf format standardized soon (if it hasn't already). If memory serves, I believe this was one of the things that was "introduced" at SWW2006.

I believe they are going to debut "3D PDF" capabilities in SW 2007. A 3D dwg or dxf doesnt make sense those are 2D formats.

Well, they're traditionally 2D, but they've been capable of 3D for years.
