Exporting posed mesh

Hi Everyone, got a quickie for ya that I can’t find the answer for. I have some characters I’ve modeled and posed in blender, and I want to export them as either .3ds or .dxf. My question is, how do you export a model so that it still has the posed shape from blender? I have a man, base mash he’s just standing there, I used an armature rig to pose him in a work position, then expot and open in ACAD expecting to see him in the work position, only he is back in his base mesh stance. I feel…confused. I know there is probably a simple fix, but I can’t find it! HELP!! :o

Thank-you in advance for any advice. Me and my Boss await your response. :smiley:

Use the Apply Deformation script and export that mesh.
