Ilogic Save drawing as inventor dwg

Hi,

 

Is there a way in an inventor drawing rule to do a "save as" which saves the drawing as an Inventor dwg file rather than an AutoCAD dwg file?

 

The below saves as AutoCAD which is ok but I need the outputted drawing to be linked to the model.

 

I don't want the code to save the entire assembly as this is done further down the line.

 

I also don't want to save the current inventor dwg drawing from which the rule is run as this is just a template drawing.

 

ThisDoc.Document.SaveAs(ThisDoc.Path&"\2D_DRAWINGS\"&iProperties.Value("Custom", "Drawing No.")&" (Rev "&Parameter("BEAUFORT_ARRANGEMENT_3.iam.DRAWING_REVISION_NO")&")"&".DWG", True)
