CADWorx Tip: Automatic PDF Isometric Drawings

Often it is required to supply Isometric Drawings in PDF format. A general workflow to accomplish this involves users generating the Isometric Drawings to the standard (*.dwg) format file and then using the AutoCAD batch plot functionality to export these to PDF.

A quicker method would be to have Isogen automatically generate the (*.dwg) file and a PDF copy in one step. 

This can be set in I-configure by selecting the relevant Style in I-Configure and clicking on the "Edit" button then clicking on "Drawing File"under the "Drawing Manager" section as seen below. 


Next, expand the "PDF Export" options and check the "Export" checkbox. Lastly select the relevant "Color Mode" as seen below.

Once saved, run an Isometric using the "ISOGENOUT" command or "ISOGENBATCH" command and a PDF Format Isometric Drawing will be generated in the same folder as the (*.dwg) file.
