Create Model Space Geometry from a Layout

There is a little feature in AutoCAD which allows you to create Model space geometry in a new DWG from a Layout. This might be useful to create a new version of a file, or perhaps copying detail from a Layout which has been sent to you.

Either way, if this seems like a useful tool, then read on to learn more.
  • Whilst in your Layout, right click on the active Layout TAB. Select Export Layout to Model... from the flyout menu.

  • You will prompted to set a Save location for the new DWG, once set, the new DWG will be created and you will see the dialogue below.

  • Click Open and your new DWG will contain your original Layout in Model space.
