Export or print to .pdf or .dwf file

PostPosted by roofman6 » Thu Jun 30, 2016 11:51 pm

Our local print company only accepts drawings in .pdf or .dwf format. I'm having trouble exporting or printing to either of these types of files. Can anyone be of assistance here?

Thanks,

Roofman6,

SA,selectAutocad Dwg or just hit A, Now type in file name and folder you want to save to, Also select DWG options for the Autocad version you want to save to.

Patrick,

That saves it in .dwg format but not in .dwf format. A fellow at Gcadd suggested I use PDFill, a PDF writer, and I'm going to send the drawings off to the printer and see if that works.

Thanks,

Roofman6,

You are right. I did not know there was a DWF.

At any rate GCP can save to a PDF. Hit the file tab at the top of the Screen, you will see a Save PDF option, Take it and go through the settings of how you want your PDF to be saved and Created.
