Export a dxf with shading.

I'm trying to generate a dxf to use in a laser cutter. Instead of cutting, I want to use the laser cutter to burn a picture into some wood. 
It was super easy to make a 3D model, make a drawing from it and then export a dxf. I added shading in the drawing but it does not translate to the dxf. 
Is it possible to export the shading into the dxf?

    Short answer is no - just lines, arcs, etc. How did you add shading to the drawing? Just a shaded view?
    Yes, it was the shaded view.
