    Is there a method to export Solidworks drawing file to dwg format with the parts detailed in each of the drawing views as individual blocks?

      I am sending my files to someone that has AutoCAD LT  to manipulate the files in and then he sends them back to me. The drawings are of a structural steel manufactured assembly with BOM, details, and dimensions. depending on the assembly there can be more than a couple dozen different parts. Right now I am using 3D part files and assemblies and to make the SolidWorks drawing file using standard views of the models and detailing them.  I then use the Save as method to convert the file into a DWG and then open the drawing in an AutoCAD program and modify the lose lines by blocking them into the components representing the parts they belong too. Is there any a better way to do this?
