Printing designs to PDF

Using gCADPlus, it is possible to print a number of layout sheets showing a complete design and combine the resultant PDF files as a ‘package’ for clients.

That allows for the selection of a print zone and nomination of the resolution of the resultant file. There are some limitations – resolution may not be high enough for you and it is not possible to control sheet size and thus scale. The second option that’s especially useful for making high-resolution PDF files is to print the drawing to a PDF writer such as BullZip or CutePDF. Provided that transparency is not used on entities, that gives a very nice result. If transparency is used, the print may take 5-10 minutes to complete.
