Convert Drawing To pdf


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to export a drawing to pdf without opening a drawing where AutoCAD is installed.


I want to write my own code using AutoLISP or VB.Net (and not use any existing third party utility) because I have some specific additional requirements.


Any guideline would be helpful.


Is ObjectDBx the way to go?

If you have a drawing open, you can use PUBLISH or SSM (Sheet Set Manager) to plot drawings without opening them.


How that would translate to code I have no idea

In this case your answer is that you can't do it. The AutoLISP and .Net (for AutoCAD) will work inside the application only - which you don't want to open and you excluded also a third-part solution, so the ActiveX access is out of question too.
