how to make the drawing bigger when converting to pdf

Recommended Posts

I think they are actually making the PDF using the same driver, just through a different interface, but there is someone here that says they get better results using the export option.

Probably the same driver for sure (DWG to PDF). I just prefer the control I get with the interface. It probably works fine with layout tabs and proper page setup types. Doesn't sound like this is the situation the OP has.

I agree, it's probably just a matter of getting the plot settings correct. We will find out when he gets back.

Hi all , thanks so much for your comments , much appreciated :)

I think there's a way to set a border to your drawing ( no more infinite space ) that will absolutely help me to have a clear drawing when converting to pdf even with a small dimensions but unfortunately I couldn't remember how !! any help ?

You can draw a border and title block in model space if that is what you are referring to.

I haven't used the LIMITS command in ages; really no need to.

Hi ReMark ,

(My email address was removed at 6:02 am. You missed the deadline.

 

This will remain here for 30 minutes then it will be removed. Time now is 5:32 am on the east coast of the U.S.) , that what I've found !

Yeah, you sort of delayed too long. I don't like keeping my email address up for all to see.

 

Attach a copy of the drawing to your next post. I'm off to another office to assist a new CAD user.

You need to post the .dwg in order for him to be able to help. I think if you look at a tutorial for plotting, it will help you out.

OK...I'm back. No drawing attached yet. A PDF won't work; we need a DWG.
