Somebody please help me. Ever since SW moved away from Bluebeam several years ago, I have not been able to create good quality PDFs, from drawings that contain shaded views. They are terribly pixilated. Luckily, since taking this job, I have not had a need to create PDF for the last few years, until now. We are currently using SW2007 SP4.0 (moving to SW2008 or SW2009 in the near future). Anyway, I know about the options to save the PDF in high quality. I have that checked. I also have the resolution set to high quality in the Page Setup, and the Image Quality set to the max in the Document Properties, for whatever that's worth. I have tried different settings for lineweights in the print setup. And, I have tried everything else I can think of to create good quality PDFs using the ave as PDFfunction. But it doesn work. They don even appear to make any differences. To make things even worse, I have tried a couple external PDF writers with no better results. I used PDF995 due to reading that others had good results with it. However, I didn. There are no real options in PDF995 to improve the quality either. I have also tried Adobe Acrobat 6.0 (the latest version we own), which you would think would work great. I have tried adjusting every quality setting I can find in Acrobat, but the quality does not seem to get any better. This is NOT specific to this computer either, as I have had several computers over the last few years with the same results. With all this being said, it stands to reason that it got to be something within SolidWorks that is preventing me from creating quality PDFs. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?
working for a small three man firm making kitchen I create plan & elevation drawings for customer and workshop I've tried many ways of trying to create 3D style views for the customer using AutoCad, Architechtural desktop and 3D studio but find them very time consuming, hence expensive drawings, to produce. Does anyone know of an add-on or different program that could produce simple isometeric line drawings from flat plans & elevations to give a customer a (untrue) 3D style view of there kitchen? Thanks for any advice Dave
Hi, I'm looking for a way to accurately create Isometric Views (viewing isometrically all around a part) for my templates. As far as I know, there's only one isometric view by default in SW and I don't want to create the others by rotating approximately. In Pro/E, I think you can give three angles and in Inventor, I think there all accessible by the space bar. How can I do in SW? Thanks JC
Hi I am looking for Autocad 14 isometric drawing tutorials. Can anyone suggest web sites or good books? Thanks! SB
