How to create a plan footprint that can be exported as dwg or dxf and imported by engineer to civil scale


Recommended Posts

I am Ginger Carter Patterson, Chief User since 1994. I am using version X13.
About ten years ago when I was using an older version of CA I regularly exported a footprint file for the engineer by creating a CAD detail, then sending a footprint to the CAD detail that could be imported by the engineer to their ACAD plot plan. 
I have not been asked for a footprint in several years, but recently was asked for a footprint of a large home I'm doing in Hot Springs Village (I'm in Texarkana). 
I can't figure out how to create that simple drawing in X13! I've watched the tutorials, but they show creating terrain. I never had to create terrain before. It was simple. 
What am I missing?
