Regarding dxf export. I'm not 100% but quite sure, the object to be exported as dxf doesn't have to be a sketch.
Will give that a try, also the Latice2 workbench ;-)
Must say that working with solids is difficult for me, I'am 51 years old so my tech base is flat drawing and still thinking in flat, also I'am a machinist so that's my second limitation, I draw the way I machine stuff, I never add shapes to a solid since my machine can't do that, it can only take away material with it so I draw my base material (round for the lathe or laser cutted sheet for machining) and then add every step the way I would do it on the machine on top off that, main advantage is that whatever I draw I really can make ;-)

You can multi-select many sketches the export as .dxf to get one file.
That's a cool one, didn't know that!
