Using PDF generator for converting .dwg to PDF



Hi all,

I am bit confused about using distiller for converting .dwg to PDF conversion. I need a server application which takes a .dwg file as an input and depending on the file attributes, converts it into a suitable PDF file (A4, A3, etc. depending on the .dwg file). Is using distiller a good idea or I should be looking into other tools?? Can Livecycle PDF generator handle such a thing??Kindly help me in this regard..




Hello Deepak.

LiveCycle PDF Generator is the right tool to use for automating .dwg to PDF conversions and supports 2D CAD drawings. Distiller only handles PostScript to PDF. If you're interested in rendering 3D CAD drawings in PDF, there's a new product, LiveCycle PDF Generator 3D, which can handle that.
