To help share your Revit files to other CAD platforms such as AutoCAD, Revit has some export tools to help the process; The DWG files for projects are layered well but when it comes to your custom Families there are a few tricks worth knowing to generate useful AutoCAD Files.
A common question is how to remove the back-plane we see in the families before exporting to DWG. This back-plane is the Host geometry that a family is built on so that it orientates itself correctly when used in a Revit Project, but in an AutoCAD drawing these host back-planes actually gets in the way and are not required. In this Revit video you can learn some techniques to resolve this back-plane issue, plus some other exporting tools that can help you create good quality AutoCADs' DWG files from your Revit Families.
