     Use File - Export - IDF, You can then create either a basic IDF or PTC or SRDC type. Talk to your customer to find out which 3D tool he is using. Use the HELP button to help you decide on the options.

    Hi

    Even DXF files will be with height information.

    File, Export, DXF and enable "Export symbols and padstacks as BLOCKs" - you can define a default height for components without any height.

    Best regards

     Package Geometry->Place Bound Top shape is where the height is defined.   Set this up in your library symbol.
