    I am pretty sure that you cannot

    it is not on the xdpx export list

    you could run a vector export file [svg? pdf?] through third party software to convert

    No, Xara can't export DXF ... However, if you save it as a PDF and import it into INKSCAPE, Inkscape CAN export as DXF

    thanks Keith - would that be any better than just exporting svg I wonder for 3D modelling in wings or blender even - I've always thought of DXF as being more of a CAD/CAM or Plotter/Cutter format ...

    Oh, sorry, you're right. Not DXF, I was exporting to AI format, which I can import into Wings 3D, which is how I did that logo. Got confused with another program doing the same kind of thing (not recently though, so how that got flopped in my head, I don't know).
