DWG convertion

Post by StephSBS »

Hi all,
i would know how to convert DWG to jpeg (or another image format).
I already seen that GFL SDK needs an extra tool like CADTools, but do it work with another viewer?

Could you give an exemple of convertion?

Thanks.
Steph.

Converting DWG to raster-image is not a job which can be done in 5 minutes. Often also experienced CAD-user have problems to find the right resolution, right size, right color and so on ...

I think you should try a "DWG Viewer" and use its "print and conversion" features

Free, perfectly, fat: DWG Trueview http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc ... eID=123112

Smaller one, but not free:
VP View www.softelec.com
ABViewer http://www.cadsofttools.com/en/products/abviewer.html
CADView (Listerr-Plugin for TotalCommander): http://www.cadsofttools.com/en/news/cad ... pport.html

Hi peter,
Thanks for your answer.
I already donwloaded TrueView from Autodesk.
I already donwladed ABViewer.
Now I will try to use GFL SDK to load DWG and try to save it into an image.
If I right, GFL SDK can load DWG when ABViewer is installed, isn't it ?
I would like just build a preview of the first plan.

Stephane.
