I need to send some 2d drawing to cusotmers but I dont want view the layers that are turned off. Is there a way to do this? They need CAD draws so converting to .pdf will not work.

Let me explain:
I have drawing with lets say 250 layers. I need to sent this drawing to customer but only wantt to send the 15 layers I turned ON and I dont want them to have acces to the others. It has to be a CAD file so they can attach to an assembly drawing. But I dont want them to access my other layers that I turned off. Locking them dose not work unless there is a way it can be done were they can not unlock.

Copy and paste just the data/layers you want to send to a new drawing and
send them that.

Or erase everything you don't want to send, save it as a new name, then undo
the original.
