Sharing CAD files

Do you have a question you want to ask an existing QCAD user about QCAD and what you can do with it? Do you want to know if a particular feature exists? This is the place to ask.

Sharing CAD files

Postby ive » Tue May 11, 2010 11:36 am

Hi, I'm looking for information on how to share CAD files via PDF - is it possible to save them into a PDF so that end users (archtitects) can then copy and paste them to use themselves? The files would need to be there in their entirety and not just flat images. Hope you can help!

PDF is a presentation format. This means that it is not suitable or meant for exchanging the data itself but only a particular presentation of the data.
