MEAM.Design - SolidWorks - Drawings / Export your Drawings

Once you're ready to export your drawing, select 'File > Save As..., and you will have a number of different options, the most important of which are described below:

SLDDRW - the standard SolidWorks drawing format, which will allow you to re-open the drawing and make changes at a later time.

DWG - this is the standard for bringing files down to the laser cutter, and can be opened in a number of other programs (AutoCAD, DWGeditor, Adobe Illustrator, etc.)

PDF - quite conveniently, you can generate PDF files of your drawing directly from within SolidWorks.
