I am presuming one can use the old "PolygonsOnly->true" command since it is stated by Mathematica when one tries to use the old DXF package, that the full functionality of the old DXF Add On package is in the new export command. If someone knows how to indeed use the PolygonsOnly->True command within the new Export method of writing to a DXF file, it would be appreciated.
