 How to convert AutoCAD DWG to PDF File? Convert AutoCAD to PDF, PDF plotter

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.
