Converting CAD Drawings to PDF

If you are not reading Rick Borstein’s blog Acrobat for Legal Professionals, take a moment right now and go subscribe.

This week Rick posted a great how-to describing how to convert documents from a DWG format to PDF. DWG is the format used by many CAD programs. There are CAD viewers available, however, you must learn how to use those viewers in order to view the files.

Rick explains how you can convert a DWG file to a PDF, even if you do not have a program that will open a DWG file. Rick also explains how to use the pan & zoom functions as well as how to navigate the layers in the file.

All of this can be very handy information if you become involved in a litigation in which you are getting documents from an architectural or engineering firm.
