Hi there! I'm new to this forum. Does anybody know how to convert AutoCAD DWG to PDF file? How can I convert AutoCAD to PDF, is there any DWG to PDF converter free? The one I'm using currently doesn't always convert every PDF file. It would be better if I can even convert mass dwg to pdf?

I don't mind if it's free or I have to pay for it. Any help would be much appreciated.
