DXF export trick

This is what I have come up with until the DXF export is working. I needed this DXF ASAP and it was the quickest free way to do it on a mac. 

Edit, my hack has been completely made pointless. I have changed the video to one that is better as of a few minutes ago with a OS update

    Lets see... it's like hide and seek, or find the easter eggs. What I have found so far:
    • DXF DWG export of faces
    • show constraints check box on sketches
    • Create and move subassemblies in assemblies
    • Translucent view in the dropdown of the orientation cube (not 100% on this one being new)
    • XYZ added to mate connector dialog boxes
    • Ball mate
    • Owner part for mate connectors in connector dialog
    Thats all I got right now :)
