You can export or plot your drawings in a number of formats, including DWF, DXF, PDF, and Windows metafile (WMF). You can also output your drawings in image formats using specially designed plotter drivers.
In each case, a nonsystem plotter driver is configured to output file information. You can control the custom properties of each nonsystem driver in the Plotter Configuration Editor. Specific help for each driver is also available by choosing Help while in the custom Properties dialog box for the individual driver (accessed through the Plotter Configuration Editor).
You can create Design Web Formatâ„˘ (DWFâ„˘) files, a 2D vector file that you can use to publish your drawings on the World Wide Web or an intranet network.
DXB (drawing interchange binary) file formats are supported using the DXB nonsystem file driver. This is commonly used to â€śflattenâ€ť 3D drawings to 2D.
The nonsystem raster driver supports several raster file formats, including Windows BMP, CALS, TIFF, PNG, TGA, PCX, and JPEG. The raster driver is most commonly used to plot to files for desktop publishing.
Using the DWG to PDF driver, you can create Adobe. Portable Document Format (PDF) files from drawings.
Using the Adobe PostScript driver, you can use DWGs with an array of page layout programs and archive tools such as the Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF).
You can use any plotter configuration to create plot files that can be used with spooling software or given to service bureaus for output.
