Yes, from dwg2pdf -h:

Code: Select all

...
-w, -min-lineweight=LW  Set minimum line weight to LW drawing units

Andrew,

Thank you very much for your quickly reply,

I tried to use -w parameter. But, for some files this parameter have different behaviours. Look attached files.

PDF1 was generated using CAD1 with command (dwg2pdf.bat -a -c -d -f -n -l -w 0.5 -fs romans standard -fs romand standard -o "C:\Temp\a\2pdf\PDF1.pdf" "C:\Temp\a\2pdf\CAD1.DWG")
PDF2 was generated using CAD2 with command (dwg2pdf.bat -a -c -d -f -n -l -w 0.5 -fs romans standard -fs romand standard -o "C:\Temp\a\2pdf\PDF2.pdf" "C:\Temp\a\2pdf\CAD2.DXF")

I think that -a parameter is conflicting with -w

Yes, the value is in drawing units, not paper units. 0.5mm in drawing units are wider when zoomed in.

This might change in a future version to define a minimum lineweight independent of the zoom level.
