CAD-to-PDF

Advanced Rendering retains design integrity for improved CAD-to-PDF conversion

CAD systems are extremely large and complex, typically requiring specialized authoring applications and file viewers to effectively collaborate on content. In order to share these files within documents such as quotes, RFPs, contracts and submissions, they need to be converted to ensure viewability and consistency.

Architecture, engineering and construction firms rely on Adlib's superior rendering engine to convert building, infrastructure, product or general CAD design projects into high-fidelity PDFs, while maintaining the integrity of the original design.

Transforming CAD files into high quality, searchable and shareable assets

Adlib PDF delivers Advanced Rendering, transforming corporate assets, including CAD files, into high-quality, searchable PDFs. Unlike other CAD to PDF solutions that flatten the file while converting to PDF, the Adlib CAD Module maintains file integrity by preserving the layers encoded in the original CAD file, allowing recipients to view all the information, not just bits and pieces. Adlib PDF allows users to convert virtually any CAD file to PDF, and specify the drawing view (Model or Paper Space) and layers to make visible in the PDF.

Ideal for:

  • Architecture, engineering, energy, construction and other organizations who deal with complex CAD files on a regular basis and are looking for ways to view and share those files more effectively, both with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Systems Integrators who want to provide solutions to customers in the design, engineering, energy and architectural industries, among others, to help them more efficiently share CAD designs across the organization and beyond. To partner with Adlib, join Adlib’s Partner Plus Program.

Datasheet: Adlib PDF CAD Module

Reduce costly CAD authoring application and 3rd party viewers by converting CAD files to PDF for collaboration with Adlib.

Best Practices

  • Share designs without requiring recipients to have original CAD authoring applications or other 3rd party viewers and their associated licensing costs.
  • Improve search capabilities with text-searchable metadata so users can find designs.
  • Deliver a single PDF that combines CAD designs with Microsoft Office documents and other file types.

Solutions

  • Apply advanced PDF enhancements including watermarks, headers/footers, document metadata, stamping and security.
  • Convert virtually any CAD format to PDF.
  • Specify the drawing view (Model or Paper Space) represented in the resulting PDF
