    if it is a part, then right click and choose export as DXF/DWG



    if it is a drawing right click the tab and select export
    then choose DWG from the format drop down


    if you want the flat pattern of a part then open the sheet-metal view and right click the part, then export

    mmmmm. i tryed this but the part was exported only in 2d and not in 3d. if i select all the part, when i try to do 'right click' 
    i don't have 'Export Dwg' but only 'Export'

    Right, dwg and dxf can contain 3d objects. But that format is typically expected to be 2D when exporting.

    Instead, use the export option, then choose step from the list. Or whatever format your other application can import
