Hello-

I am wondering if it is possible to export sheets and views to AutoCAD with a folder structure different than what seems to be the Revit default of putting them both in the same folder? 

I am working on a project for a large government entity who has very specific requirements for final CAD drawing submissions.  Because of the size and complexity of the project, we would like to use Revit (v200Shadey, but my main concern is exporting the final drawings to AutoCAD.  If sheets and xrefed views go to a common folder, it will mean repathing hundreds of xrefs.  I would really like to avoid this.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

thanks-

Not 100% sure, but have you tried exporting to CAD with the "Xref views on sheets" unchecked?  I believe that this removes xrefs forcing the information to be in each specific file (yes, larger file sizes, but with terra byte drives, BFD.)  If this is not an option, then I'd recommend finding an Intern Smile

this puts the line work from each view into model space of the single sheet file.  no xrefs.  not an option, i'm afraid.
