Saving and printing a rendered 3d drawing in ZWCAD

May 20, 2011

      You cannot print a rendered image directly to a printer. Instead, you must first save the drawing to a different format — either a bitmap (.bmp), JPEG (.jpg), TIFF (.tif), TrueVision TGA (.tga), or Portable Network Graphic (.png). After you save a rendered image, you can print it from another graphics program.

     Once you have generated a rendered image that you would like to save, you can use the "Save Last Image" button in the Render Settings dialog box to save the image to a file. Images can be saved in BMP, JPEG, TIFF, TGA, or PNG format. The saved image will be in 24 bit, full-color format at the same resolution as rendered on the screen. You also save the render image by click the Render in the Render to File tap from the Render Settings dialog box. The Render to File tab will allow you to produce a rendered image directly to a file on disk rather than to the ZWCAD screen.

To save a rendered image of your drawing

  1.    Create a rendered image of the drawing.

  2.    Do one of the following:

  • Choose View > Render > Preferences.

  • On the Render toolbar, click the Render Preferences tool.

  1.    On the Rendering tab, click Save Last Image.

  2.    Enter a file name and path.

  3.    In Save As Type, choose the file format.

  4.    Click Save.
