I've experienced a number of problems with various pdf Creator packages throughout my career, especially with different versions of AutoCAD I've used. For example, blobby, illegible text upon export to pdf, conflicts causing the process to crash, converting north arrows to a big black blob, etc, etc. The pdf print driver inherent to CAD is also sub par (in my experience).
I found the free pdf Creator at THIS LINK to be the most highly recommended to interface with higher level AutoCAD licences (according to the AutoDesk forum). Feedback would be greatly appreciated regarding this software, or any other reccomendations any of you may have. Purchasing the Adobe Pro is acceptable, however:
- Is it coded to work well with AutoCAD Civil 3D?
- Will the free option at the link I posted serve my needs (free is obviously preferred)?
- Is there a better option than the two I've mentioned?
I'm looking for actual user experience (with CAD), not random free pdf creator options/suggestions.
Thanks in advance
CORRECTION I noticed at the AutoDESK forum that the answers were not listed by highest rank. There are no vote-ups whatsoever on the suggestions posted there. I assumed the answer at the top of the page was "the best" answer, while in actuality, it was just the "most recent" answer. I should have looked more closely.
