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 choosing a print zone and nominating the resolution of the resultant file. There are some limitations – resolution may not be high enough for you and it is impossible 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 or gradient color fills are not used on entities, that gives a very nice result.
