Problem with translation to .dxf or .dwg

I have prepared an etching artwork in ST4 but need to export to .dwg or .dxf format to send to an etcher. In SE the fill areas look fine and just where they should be and the "save as" is sucessful. However, when I view the .dwg or .dxf file created in DWG Trueview 2012 and a couple of other similar viewers the fills seem to be randomly missing, broken out of the boundaries and not where I put them in Solid Edge. All very frustrating. Is there a way to deal with in the translation process? Any advice gratefully received....

Can you please simplify the drawing. Remove everything except for a couple of areas that are showing the problem. Then post the drawing as an attachment in a reply to this thread. I will take a look.

Thank you,
