How to import and export layer files using layer states manager

Import and Export Layers in AutoCAD 


In this video, we will see how we can import and export any layer in AutoCAD.

Now suppose while working on any project, we have created 16-17 layers of our choice, and then we want all the same layers for our other Project. We can import them from Project we created.

We will go to layer status manager by pressing the 'Alt+S' key, and then click on the New button and give the New layer state name and description for it and click OK. After that, we will save that Layer State and then export it to the file we want using the 'Export' button.

The extension for saving this file will be '.las.'
Now suppose if we open the Project in which we have exported the properties, we can go to layer properties manager and select the '.las' extension and then the Project from which we want our layers to be imported. Hence It will show all the layer Properties in the new Project also.

We need to remember that whichever properties of line types we are importing, we should first load them in the linetype manager of the new Project. In then, only the layer properties will be imported from other projects.

Now we can easily use all the layers as per our requirement in our new Project.
