How do I create a PDF from CAD?
I would like to send my plans in PDF. Is there any way to create PDF files?
The following video has been recorded using LANDWorksCAD. These same steps can be followed using RealCAD and ArborCAD.
In this example, we want to create a PDF file from a LANDWorksCAD plan.
First, go to File > Print Preview > Window (or Selection, whatever suits you)
Then, click on the ‘Printer Setup‘ icon as shown below:
On the Printer Setup Dialog Box, select PDF XChange Pro and adjust the paper size, source and orientation as desired.
Now we are ready to click on ‘Print’
The PDF file will start being generated, showing a progress bar on the bottom right corner of your screen.
Once the PDF file has been generated, it will ask for a file name and location in your hard drive.
You can Run the Viewer Application After Saving by selecting the appropriate checkbox, as shown above.
The PDF Viewer will show the generated PDF plan.
