How to ploting drawing & conversion to pdf,jpg,png & other format

Creating JPEG And PNG Files From AutoCAD


In this video we are going to learn that how we can plot drawing and how we can convert our drawing to PDF, JPG, PNG and other format.

First of all we will take one sample drawing and then plot it in the layout. So for that we will use rectangular viewport. And before that we will set our page to ISO A4.

After than we will draw our layout using that rectangular tool. If you're working with block in our layout then we will use polygon tool for drawing. We can set our drawing by double clicking on it.

Now the question remains that how we can plot it, so for that we will press 'Ctrl+T' key from our keyboard and then select 'Continue to plot a single sheet' option.

And after that we will select 'DWG to PDF' file option in case we want our drawing file to convert in PDF.

As soon as we press OK after setting everything than we will be asked to name our file and select the type of file as PDF and at last Save it at our desired location.

Similarly we can create our drawing file to JPG or PNG by selecting their particular option while plotting.
