I want to export a file from Adobe Illustrator but it's kinda messing it up. I've no idea why.

In case you don't see the problem instantly: The shadow (3D Extrude & Bevel effect) of the gray line gets cut at multiple positions.

My export Settings: I've fiddled with a lot of different settings around but couldn't get it any better.

You need to expand your object. It's located under Object in the main menu. After that use the Select- same - fill color, and the pathfinder palette to combine the colors into one single object. Play around and it will become intuitive. good luck.
