You can use any program which can create PDF
for example, free software PDFCreator http://www.pdfforge.org/products/pdfcreator. Also with PDFCreator you can print as raster images PNG, JPG, TIFF, BMP, PCX, PS, EPS.

Hello, Pavel. Thankyou. I will spend some time to learn the PDFCreator. And later I will introduce it to other users. Smile

Yes, Thanks Pavel. I wonder if the only real advantage of using Adobe Acrobat Writer is the 3d pdf export? (And guaranteed compatibility, too, perhaps) Would you know?

EDIT: Why is export (SVG, WMF etc) not there in the Standard version? Surely that should be part of the standard toolset? Confused One reason so many users are moving away from Autocad is their habit of removing all functions that they thought would be more useful away from AutocadLT - lisp, expresstools etc.

Maybe, with pdfcreator we can add that back to the toolset? Tongue

Pdf995 is a good software for creating pdf file because:


a)Automatic display the output of the pdf via adobe pdf reader

b)Under shareware vision, it does not have any water marker on the pdf

Here on our company sometimes we use Autodesk Dwg True View 2010, just for print jobs because it seems that have a greater quality.
They also have a printer driver called "Dwg To PDF.pc3" that is wonderful.
It exports also the layer state to the pdf format!!!
How about Zwcad creates a printer driver with also this function?
Thank you.

i know solidworks can generate to PDF directly and it is 3D.

Hi, Steven~

From the 2009i version, ZWCAD can support " DWG to PDF". You can open your drawing with DWG format in ZWCAD, then use the "export" function to save the drawing. If it is a 3d drawing, it is still 3D drawing in the PDF file. You can have a try.

Have a nice day.
