DXF export problem

Hi All

 

A supplier I deal with is having major trouble opening the DXF files I send him from Solidworks. I have a solidworks drawing with the parts layed out at 1:1 scale. I export that as a DXF file and when ever he tries to bring them in no go??  He has opened them in illustrator and said that the straight lines are doubled up and the outlines aren't joint as polylines. I have also experienced this problem when editing DXF from Solidworks in graphic programs like illustrator and Corel draw. I even when to the extent of manually joining all the lines and corners in Corel draw and out putting a DXF but he could not read them either?

 

Any idea? I really need to get these parts cut but until he can read the files I'm screwed!
