Hi everyone and thx alot for your time!

Im tring to export to DWG, from a country map, a small square zone with 2 xy corners.


import arcpy

in_features = "%MyFeatures%"

output_type = "DWG_R2004"

output_file = "c:/data/world.dwg"

arcpy.ExportCAD_conversion(in_features, output_type, output_file, "USE_FILENAMES_IN_TABLES""OVERWRITE_EXISTING_FILES")


Whis this code, im able to export to DWG with no problem but it export the complete country map zone.

How can I export only a small square zone in a 2 xy area?


I tried adding:

arcpy.env.extent = arcpy.Extent(-73.536116, 45.967176 , -73.360613, 45.871700)

but everytime the .dwg is empty.


Can anyone tells me what I did wrong or what I can do to be able to export only a small zone from the country feature.


Thx alot
