dwg2pdf generates blank PDF file

Post by vadnart » Tue Jul 07, 2020 4:03 am

Hi,

(apologies if this is duplicate post)

Newbie question....i'm trying to convert DWG to PDF using the dwg2pdf command line tool (mac OS) but the resulting PDF file is blank, only 1KB in size.

I'm just using the default command without any parameters.

I am able to convert to a JPG and PNG using the dwg2bmp command and the DWG loads properly in QCAD app so i think the DWG file is ok.

I've attached the DWG file. thanks again in advance for any help.


Regards

Hi J-J,

Thanks! yes that's exactly what I needed. I used the -a parameter as you suggested and that works great.

thanks again.
