A-PDF AutoCAD to PDF is a program that will batch convert AutoCAD files to PDF documents.
In order to use this program, you will need to have GhostScript installed in your system. GNU Ghostscript is an open-source interpreter for the PostScript language and the PDF file format. The program installer will guide you to download and install this component if you don´t have it already installed in your system. AutoCAD 2004 or above must be installed in your computer, otherwise the program will not perform any conversion.
The program allows to convert files using three modes.
The Batch Convert mode will ask you to choose the files you want to convert and the path you want to use to store the resulting PDF documents. You will be able to put your own watermarks on the converted PDF files, and to add some metadata to them, as well.
The Hot Directories mode will allow you to specify a folder that the program will scan periodically looking for AutoCAD files, and it will automatically convert them to PDF documents.
The Command Line method can be used by entering commands at the command line.
The trial version of this program will put a watermark in your PDF documents.
- It will convert your AutoCAD files very quickly.
- It requires you to have AutoCAD installed, while many free AutoCAD viewers don´t need that.
