!div style="display:none"!fjrigjwwe9r2content:tip!/div!!div style="display:none"!edf40wrjww2content:tip!/div!To export your Strata models to DXF and keep individual parts separate, make each part a Shape. Name the shapes so that the names begin with LAYER_

For example, to export the teapot included in the Strata resources palette, rename its Shapes as follows:

LAYER_body
LAYER_handle
LAYER_neck

Export to DXF. This should keep the parts separate. Without the renaming, the parts will be merged into a single mesh.
