It seems that obj to dxf conversion should be doable in plenty of 3D modeling tools and is probably used for reasons to export a 2D view or slice from a 3D model so it can be used in a 2D CAD editor. Some software known to be capable of this conversion are listed below.

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned obj to dxf. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
