Exporting title blocks for consultants

Is there a quick way to export a title block in CAD for my consultants to use, without sending the plans?
Happy weekend and thanks!

If you mean so they can use it in Archicad then try to select it and save it as a MOD (FILE menu > External content > Save as MOD) or save it as an object (FILE menu > Libraries and objects > Save as object).
If you save as an object they will need to explode it you they can use it.
Unless your title block is an object already (but I am guessing it is just lines and text).

Sorry I wasn't clear: My consultants (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) are still on AutoCAD.
I normally just export the whole sheet, like a Cover Sheet to them and then they get it, but I then exports the contents of that sheet also.....
I may have just answered my own question> What if I just create an empty sheet, name it Consultant Sharing or something like that, and export it as a DWG file.
Well thanks. At least i learned about the saving as MOD which I didn't know before.
