Does Carlson with IntelliCAD have an option to print to PDF?
No, not at this time.
It’s my understanding that the cost of each license of Carlson would have had to increase by quite a bit to absorb the cost of embedding an Adobe PDF writer into the software. So, Carlson decided to not add it and to just encourage users to use one of the many after-market AtoCAD to PDF writers on the market.
Creating PDFs for CAD training and other tasks is a large part of my job so I actually use Adobe Acrobat which is rather pricey. Here are a few more that range from free to pretty cheap to pricey:
- PDF995: http://www.pdf995.com
- CutePDF: http://www.cutepdf.com
- PDF Creator: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/
- Adobe Acrobat, of course: http://www.adobe.com
