AutoCAD is one of the world`s leading tools for technical drawing and computer-aided design (CAD). It is a very powerful tool which supports both two dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) formats.
Many engineers, designers, students, architects, project managers and other professionals from various industries around the world use AutoCAD for their projects. One example of the successful implementation of AutoCAD is the National Stadium Brasilia.
AutoCAD normally uses DWG and DFX file formats for saving and presenting projects. One great way to store and present AutoCAD designs to others is to convert them to PDF. PDF guarantees that your stakeholders and viewers will see your file just as you intended them to.
Converting DWG to PDF is not a problem. If you own the Adobe Acrobat Pro software application, for example, you can create PDF files from your DWGs very easily. Click on this link for a step-by-step guide.
