You can also choose to download the features in just a selected region by zooming in on the map at the top of the screen, and then choosing 'Download Filtered Dataset'. Due to storage limitations, we are currently only hosting ESRI layers (you can convert an ESRI shapefile to a DWG/DXF format using most drafting software).
