Save as DXF or DWG file extension if your drawing software allows.

Problem I'm finding is that these were already saved as a BMP file so they are pixelated already - so would need to be redrawn in CAD. Grumble!

You don't have to grumble. I am the guilty chap. :D

I have made this design for my 2-4-0 NG locomotives and upload the BMP files on GRABCAD four years ago.

EXCELLENT! I figured whoever published those plans would probably enjoy seeing them again - And I can't help but share them...
