Automatic publish DWG to PDF in AutoCAD on save or close

One new thing that comes with AutoCAD 2010 is that you now can automatically publish PDF files. Previously only DWF files were supported.

Taka look at Options>Plot and Publish

and you find Auto Publish Settings

You can auto-publish on Save and Close as well as get a prompt before the publishing.

The location for the PDF files can either be the drawing folder, a sub-folder relative to the drawing folder named “DWF and PDF” or any other specified folder.

Other settings are if you want to include Model, Layouts or both, creation of single-sheet or multi-sheet files, inclusion of layers, lines merge control and so on.

The AUTOPUBLISH command can also be used to specify some of the settings on the command line.
