Hello,
I'm very new to using ArcGIS Pro and ArcMap. I only started about two weeks ago. Currently, I am trying to export from ArcGIS Pro 2.0 to AutoCAD 2015 in order to create a file to be lasercut. Whenever I use the export to CAD tool, it doesn't export to the right scale and it doesn't export the entire view frame properly.

I am trying to export this:

But it only gives me this:

I have it set to export only the view extend, but it still won't export everything I need. If anyone could tell me how to properly export this, that would be fantastic.

Thanks so much.

Steven, what is this CAD Team? Perhaps it might be best placed in the CAD/GIS Data Integration‌ group.

Vincent, are you still having issues with this? Could you share your data here so we can check it out?

Oh man, this is my jam! 

@VincentPignato  - Are you still active (4 year old post)?

I picked up a laser cutter/engraver about 2 years ago to make 3D Topos and engraved maps with it.  I've made it through about 15 map projects with it so far.  Would love to talk shop with you if you're still active with Maps & Lasers.
