(yet another) dxf translation question

I fave searched through everything I could find about writing dxf files
from Mathmatica. (I'm running 2.2.4 in Windows 95) The closest I could
find was the snipet below:

 shape = Plot3D[Sin[x+Sin[y]], {x,-3,3},{y,-3,3}]
 WriteDXF["knot.dxf", shape]

Instead, what I get is this message:

 WriteDXF[knot.dxf, -SurfaceGraphics-]

What am I missing? Thanks for your help!
