Try exporting as ACIS (*.sat). (I don't think the ACISOUT command will work on ACA objects - you have to go through the menu or explode once and then ACISOUT).


In your thread title you state AutoCAD but in your problem description you state  ACA.  You might try over here  where there might be someone who can better answer your question.
