Options - Convert DWG DXF DWF to PDF

Step 1 - Add Files:


Click the "Add" button to add one or more than one drawing files you want to convert, click the "Add Folder" button to add all the drawing files of one folder and its subfolders. You can also drag the files from Explorer and drop them on the drawing file List.

You may click the arrow button to adjust the generating order to PDF file, and edit the bookmark by clicking on the bookmark item.

Layout and Layer... (new)

The software allows users to resign the layout and layers that are supposed to be exported. More...

Step 2 - Set the parameters of drawing(DWG / DXF / DWF) files

Layout

To set the layout type of the supposed output, it could be: current layout, only model space layout, all layouts, all paper space layouts and user sets.

Hidden Line Removal

If there are 3D objects in your graph, and the conversion result is supposed to be hiddem line removal, you could tick this option to achieve the result. There are two kinds as Automatic mode and Enforcement mode. The automatic mode could descide whether to remove the hidden line according to the settings, while the enforcement mode would order the software to forcely remove the hidden line. (this mode is not recommended)

EnableLineweight

The designed lineweight parameter in the graphic file is allowed to be used, this option is repulsive to the use of print pen, so you can only choose one mode to output the linewidth at the same time.

Use Print Pen Sets

This option is the same as the Lineweight selection, which descides the linewidth of the output graph. It could set each color and linewidth of the corresponding color pen nubmers. More...

Export Layer

PDF supports layer concept. This option is helpful in controlling the PDF graphic displayment by controlling the layer, which is as same as AutoCAD. Several files are merged into a layer object which would be saved on one layer.

Use the layout Page Size if Possible

This option is effective to graphic space layout. In graphic space layout, output page related information is contained and the software will output PDF files by automatically reading the pre-defined parameters.

Auto Zoom Extent

Its is to command the software to automatically calculate the maximum bounding retangle which is set as the output range. If the option is not ticked, the output is set as the viewport value of the latest saved file.

Watermark Setting and Usage

You could descide and set the user-designed watermark. The user-designed watermark will be added to the output PDF. Any words that you wish to add could be included, such as company, designer, date, file name, or a kind of copyright protection measure.

Step 3 - Set the parameters of PDF files

Hidden Line Removal

If there are 3D objects in your graph, and the conversion result is supposed to be hiddem line removal, you could tick this option to achieve the result. There are two kinds as Automatic mode and Enforcement mode. The automatic mode could descide whether to remove the hidden line according to the settings, while the enforcement mode would order the software to forcely remove the hidden line. (this mode is not recommended)

Size and Unit

Add custom page size

Creates a customized paper size or nonstandard paper size. more

Page Margin

The blank margine of the page layout . Its unit is the same as the designed unit, which would not change while the ratio is altering.

PDF File Info

You could add information to the designed PDF file.

Output PDF file

If you designed a output file, a file name should be ordered, otherwise, a folder path should be appointed.
