Hi nicksol, and welcome here! The easiest way for .pdf is to zoom and fit the things inside the 3D window, then File > Export PDF.

You could also use the Drawing WB, but it is just a little more involved.

For .dwg and .dxf it's trickier, (and I'm pressed for time and also not so sure) so you'll have to wait for someone else to answer that for you.

I am trying to export it from the part choosing export PDF, because i can not create a drawing page. I can not transfer all these lines to the drawing sheet
